Saw reviews so had to give it a try. Haddock & chips plus cod and chips. Lovely fresh fish in a nice light crisp batter. Restaurant itself is very small, dark & dingy. Good basic food but I'd prefer to take it away rather than eat in if I go again

Often come here for lunch . If you like fish, this is the place to come. The restaurant itself looks a bit dated, but its clean and pleasant, and the food is fantastic. Lobster , crab , seafood chowders etc

I have walked past this place for many years and had no clue how very good it was. Yes it majors on fish and the Moules were the best I EVER had by a long way. The main dish of seafood tagliatelle was also exceptional!

Having ordered and practically had our wine thrown at the table, the food arrived! My friends starter of mussels was amazing but the chilli king prawns I ordered were terrible and I would put my money on the fact they were frozen, any upstanding fisherman would have been ashamed! I was going to quietly mention this to the waiter but... More

Eat in for an amazing (huge) portion of Fish and Chips in a wonderful atmosphere.... or if you prefer a lobster or freshly caught crab, these looked amazing too and our fellow diners couldn't recommend them enough.

Usually have the enormous battered fish, but this time went for the fresh mackerel. Meant to be one whole mackerel but it was late and they gave me two, plus chips.
