The Shack is brilliant. quite simple really! If you want seafood that tastes like it just came from the sea, is served by polite, attentive and knowledgable people and is in simple no fuss surroundings then look no further. You'll need to book to get a table, just about as good as it gets!

Food was great at Shack and it is a very cosy reaturant, amazing tasting seafood... It is rather busy as on first night was booked up and so we reserved a table for next day. Their lobster and carb tend to be very popular and I recommend pre-booking them... Great valus and price too!! Highly recommened

Fantastic restaurant, fantastic staff, fantastic fresh seafood. We have just eaten at this restaurant with my partner and two children aged 12 and 9. My son had the whitebait starter, which I have to say was probably the best whitebait I have ever tasted. We shared the Shack seafood stack with an extra large crab as a treat. The scallops... More

Not so difficult to cook a crab or lobster and here they certainly know how to do it well. Both lobster and crab in different sizes available. Delicious whitebait as starter or for lunch and friendly and efficient service. I have been here a couple of time and never disappointed.

This was our second visit, taking friends this time. We were first in the door at 6pm and ordered the only two medium crabs that were on offer. There was limited availability so if you are keen to have something specific order in advance! We also ordered two Shack Stacks which made the bill for four of us over £100... More

The 'Shack Stack' consisting of a wonderful assortment of seafood, is to die for. The atmosphere was vibrant ant the service great.

we ate very well and the staff was very friendly...there wasn't a seat available and they asked us to return back in 15 minutes...and when we were back the table was there...we didn't spend too much...we recommend the platter for two at the base of crab and other fish (38,00 £)

I had been to this fabulous restaurant twice once with friends and once with my mother. Both occations the staff could not have been more helpful if they tried. The first time with friends we had the lunchtime muscles and soup which were cooked to perfection. The second was with my mother she is the sole carer for my father.... More

Great location, good food, and pleasant service. Reserve your lobster and crab if it's peak season or you could be disappointed. Scallops were nice too. Pricey but a very nice evening out and worth the extra few quid.
