Just how a fish restaurant should be!

Fantastic range of fresh local fish, great service and an atmosphere sadly missing in so many British fish restaurants.

This is the place for amazing fresh local fish cooked to perfection. It is pricey but worth it for great food and impressive service that was attentive but not over the top. We paid just over £70 for two starters, two mains and a gorgeous bottle of wine. Servings are generous. I'd recommend booking far in advance; we tried to... More

Ate here on Thursday night, long deliberations due to variety of dishes on offer - choice of fresh fish on the tray for specials, time spent explaining how they were prepared and cooked.... More

This is not fish and chips. This is fresh fish brought raw to your table for you to choose before it is cooked. Amazing place with a long reputation.

We called in on the Friday to book for the following Saturday night. No luck as they were fully booked but Jason said leave your number and I will call you if I get a cancellation. True to his word we got the call and there was a table avalable at 18:00. A little early but we took it. We... More

It was a long time since I ate at number seven, but I was very pleased to find that the food and service were just as good. Fish is fresh and varied, so is the normal items you expect, but they some less common choices as well. The wine list also covered a wide range of tastes. We were very... More

We turned up without a booking and were quickly shown to one of the few available tables. The restaurant was busy which we thought was a good sign. We were not disappointed. We were shown a tray of fish detailing the "specials" and the cooking options were explained clearly. The food arrived in good time and was absolutely divine! The... More
