The Sea Tree is an alternative fish bar offering traditional fish and chips alongside a menu of other fresh, healthy, sustainable and cooked to order seafood dishes, to eat in or takeaway. We buy our fish from Billingsgate Market to ensure we get the very best and freshest fish and change our menu depending on the season.

Used to be better

They never give you enough chips anymore. Theres a salad and scallops dish - they used to give you about 10, now you get maybe 4 scallops. Theyve overcooked the fish twice for me recently. I would say try and eat in, they seem to try harder that way - and at least you can send it back if they... read more

Ok it´s not fish like in Portugal but for the UK this is a very good fish restaurant. Great and tasty sea-food, fresh fish and overall very tasty dishes, I've tried the fish-stew and the fish and chips cod option and they were both tasty and very well served. Totally recommend this place, staff are very nice and welcoming, they... More

I refer to review of 26 May 2013, regarding gluten reaction after *carefully* ordering gluten-free. My wife, who is on a g-free diet, ordered calamari rings gluten free. As with the other review, soon after eating the meal, she started to experience allergic reactions. The restaurant itself is fine, the staff friendly and helpful, but after especially seeking out this... More

What a nice, clean we'll run chip shop and restaurant. We had the fish stew which was very good. However, the traditional fish and chips looks like it would take some beating. No reservations so you may have to wait, but it's well worth it.

I was in Cambridge for work from the U.S. for three weeks. I went to quite a few different restaurants trying to find something I could even rate as "decent". This restaurant might have saved me from going on a fast. It was better than decent, wonderful seafood, plenty of options, and very friendly staff/owners.

This is by far the best chippie around, delicious fresh food, great value for money and a service that always makes you feel welcome! We recommend their Special mixed fish burger! It is AMAZING!

We have visited the Sea Tree on a couple of occasions and have always had a fantastic experience. The staff are all very friendly and attentive and the atmosphere is always very lively - usually due to the large queue (often out the door) waiting for take-away fish and chips or for a table to become free (there aren't many...

Have been here many times and it doesn't disappoint. This time around I brought 7 of my family members here and despite the restaurant being very limited in space, the staff were able to seat us very quickly. The food was great with a variety of seafood. The mussels especially were mouth watering. Fishermans pie is also highly recommended.

The battered fish from this restaurant was superb - thick, crispy, generously portioned. There's also an interesting menu of fresh fish, salads and shellfish, and I'll definitely be back soon to try more!
