Seafood perfection and Lobster when available

Very popular and small so would recommend booking a table ahead. Seafood lovers can't go wrong with Platters. Well worth a visit. Unpretentious, cosy and more cafe style. Relaxed and all about the food.

We had a fantastic meal here last weekend. My husband had Dover Sole which was an absolute bargain at the price. I had Haddock. Both were cooked to perfection, and the portions huge.. We got a table with no problem, although in the past we have had to wait a while, but no wonder when the food is this good.... More

We know we're always going to get a good meal at Platters. We went there on Friday and as usual the food was good and loads of it, and at a reasonable price, with a good atmosphere. Always an enjoyable night.

Starters a little expensive for what they were, main meal very nice. My husband and I wanted to have a bottle of wine, but given no wine list. All wines are £16.95 or above the waiter told us. Felt the waiter just through the wine in the glass.

We took my dad here last night for a fathers day meal. There were four of us. We came here as a 4 about 15 years ago for his 50th birthday, it's as good as we remembered! Fantastic friendly and efficient service, nothing is too much trouble and even though they were busy the food and drinks came quickly. The... More

We were next door at the Dolphin pub and were chatting to a group of over 60's who had booked 2 tables of 4 for 7 o clock. They apparently eat at Platters on a regular basis. They were still waiting to be seated at 8:30pm. You really do not treat your regular customers like that We asked for a... More

This was my second visit to this restaurant. We were a group of four. The fish and chips were excellent and my three fish platter exceptional. I enjoyed the atmosphere. Service was excellent and cheerful. Highly recommended for seafood lovers.

If you like fresh fish, well prepared, eat here! The staff are knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. The decor is not flash (don't think it has changed in over 30 years) but the atmosphere is relaxed and welcoming.
