•Heat transfer and fluid flow characteristics over pocket cavities with different fillet radii are considered.•Liquid Crystal Thermography (LCT) is employed to measure the heat transfer over the pocket surface.•A pocket cavity with a larger fillet radius can reduce the peak heat transfer values.•Importance of the flow mechanisms is revealed.
