Good food worth the return visit

We visited a couple of years ago and decided to make the effort- it was worth a great seafood selection the chowder and grilled fish is to be commended.

Went here with my great grand daughter & had a lovely meal. Staff were attentive & knowledgeable about what was on the menu, (it's surprising how many aren't), & gave service with a smile. Food was served without having to wait too long, & we had a table with an amazing view.

This fish and chip shop has never failed to impress. The chips are always cooked perfectly, staff are always friendly and helpful and the fish is always fresh and second to none. Absolutely cannot wait to enjoy food from here again!
