Fresh fish well cooked. Something difficult to find in Cambridge. Good price as well although the dining room is a bit disappointing.

The fish and chips are good quality - I am picky about this sort of thing. The batter is good and that's important to me. The down side is that: 1) the fish comes with skin on as a norm and you need to ask for it to be skinless - why do places insist on the skin being on,... More

Me and my friends had heard about this wonderful little restaurant and it lived up to the expectations we were told. The food was delicious and the staff were very friendly, I look forward to returning!

A super little place with very friendly staff. The choice of fish is wonderful and everything we ate was fresh and delicious. I can't recommend the calamari (with alioli) enough and it was GLUTEN FREE - Yay! So nice they accommodate those who can't cope with gluten :)

This is one of our local fish and chip shops, so we've been many a time to enjoy the excellent food. The only disappointment are the chips which are invariably soggy by the time we get them home (a 3-minute walk). Otherwise, the food is excellent, so I would stay and eat your food in rather than take it away.... More

Spent a very enjoyable evening eating at the Sea Tree. Sat on one of the few outside tables to take in the evening sun. Surprising menu with several unusual fish dishes as well as the traditional favorites. Shared a calamari starter followed by king prawns pan-fried with garlic & chillies both well cooked & very tasty. My husband had fish... More

Always come here with both my parents, it's our favourite place for the British Classic, done basically to perfection. The other stuff on the healthy alternative menu is definitely worth a try too! Staff are super friendly.

I've been to this place several times now as its so local. I've found the food variable, on one occasion the fish was excellent but another time the fish was very dry and not that great. We like the wide choice of fish offered and its this choice which makes the shop unusual. The problem I have is largely with... More
