One of the best!

Have visited this restaurant several times. The fish is always great - this is a must if your in the area! I would recommended the tiger prawns to start they are the very best I have had anywhere in the world.

We visited this fish restaurant after a recommendation from our BB in Hickling, It was a special treat for my wife on our anniversary as she loves fish. We booked our table for 6.30 and their was only one other couple in the restaurant which was a shame. The waitress took our order for drinks and came back with a... More

The best seafood we have had the pleasure of being served in all of England, even better than a famous high end London restaurant. Run by a couple, Nigel (front of the house) and Abby (superb chef!!) the food quality and presentations were extra special. Greeting and service were perfect, ambiance very pleasant, but the real star was Abby's food... More

This was our second visit and was even better than the first. Top quality fish, beautifully cooked. It was a real joy. What's more, thanks to the restaurateur's guidance, I was able to go and buy the excellent wine we drank at the wine merchant in Wroxham.

We have visited many times. I think it is high time to record our appreciation for this excellent, family run restaurant. The standard of cooking is at the very highest level. The fish is always fresh and presented perfectly. There is only one downside, which is that we seldom now order fish in other restaurants because they simply don't match... More

This place has a lovely atmosphere. I went as part of a large party and they managed not to keep us waiting long for our food. When we wanted something - extra bread, more drinks, it was catered for quickly and with a smile, even when a fussier member of our group asked for something that wasn't on the menu.... More
