This used to be an excellent little cafe to visit. The fish and chips were second to none and bread and butter and tea were included in the price. The meals have gone downhill in recent months and no bread and butter is included and it is quite expensive. Won't be going there again.

At 6.15pm it was quiet. For £20 you'll order good quality fish, chips, mushy peas, two slices of bread and a pot of tea, be able to eat it and be across the road to the DCA cinema within three quarters of an hour. Take you own wine in if you want but corkage in £3.50 a bottle. Reading other... More

Maybe 5 o'clock is a bad time to go in as there were only two more tables occupied or..........word has got out... More

In the fifties and sixties The Deep Sea fish and Chip resturant was the best in town Patrons would come for far and near to enjoy the bonhomie and ambience in this eating place. Queues would line the Nethergate just to get a table at The Deep Sea. But that was then. This is now. On Friday of last week... More
