Totally fabulous performance last night at the Harbour. Lovely atmosphere and perfect weather. A brilliant end to our holiday and an absolute must for your visit. The guys sing mist Friday evenings in the summer. Join the throng, get a cold beer and enjoy some great great music! Love it

We arrived at Port Isaac on a foggy May Friday afternoon. After waiting for our friends to arrive at the cottage, we were settling down in the lounge room when the sound of tuneful voices drifted up from the Platt. Then I remembered the YouTube clips of the Fisherman's Friends and realised it was Friday night! We raced down the... More

On most Friday nights this amazing group of shanty singers gather on the Platt and perform sea shantys from around the world.

The Fishermans friends at Salisbury city hall. Well what can I say.. An excellent evening they didn't disappoint. An evening of entertainment and song. We will go and see them on the platt in port Isaac in the summer. They all come across as very nice normal guys, happy to spend some time with everyone.

I liked the moustache .....if you go to see them on the platt it's a bit of a hike parking wise....watch the gulls they unload on you....possibly catch the boys when they come over the hill every now and then and sing outside the pub so that's the best place to see them.....
