Have eaten there 4-5 time over the last few months. Sometimes, it's great and other times it's poor. I like the fact that they use fresh fish from sustainable sources and usually the food is pretty good. Like the fact that they offer healthy seafood options as simple fish and chips. Probably the weakest area is the staff: asked where... More

Real nice food and properly Gluten free fish and chips. As well as 'normal' food. :) If you are on a gluten free diet you can eat here with confidence, they know what they are doing. It is a small place so you take your chances whether there will be a free table or not but they also do takeaway... More

Some great stuff on the menu and I've dabbled on one or two occasions, but this time I just went for classic cod, chips and mushy peas and it was superb! The batter was light and crispy and the cod tasted really fresh.

I had the smoked haddock on mustard mash and it was amazing.. I could eat it every night! And topped off with a glass of wine! The staff were friendly and despite it being busy, service was good. Will be going back

I am a picky seafood eater having grown up on freshly caught fish. So much so I avoided eating it when I lived in Germany due the constant disappointment. The Sea Tree has been quite a find for me. My husband and I have eaten in the restaurant on multiple occasions and rarely been unhappy with the food. Mussels, scallops,... More

Used to be the one place on Mill Road where you could order your food (in English, anyway), and have reasonable confidence you'd get what you ordered, even if it you were paying a high price for it. Not any more. Language barriers are creeping in. I ordered 2 items: Fish cake and small chips, no salt and vinegar; and... More

I recently read other reviews of this restaurant, and was inspired to try it last night. Even though I watched the fish being cooked, and thinking it looked lovely as it was packed into the take-away box, I couldn't have been more disappointed if I'd tried when it came to eat it 10 minutes later. The fish was completely overcooked,... More
