Simple, straight forward menu. Very helpful and attentive staff. Great value for money. The fish was cooked perfectly. The salad and real potato chips were equally as nice!

We were recommended here by our BnB. It is bright and busy, service a bit brusque, but it is basically a fish and chip shop, so what do you expect?

This was one of the best fish I have had anywhere. It is fresh and great tasting. Would recommend this place to anyone who loves fish. There were many varieties to choose from and even took some out for my son back at the hotel. Thanks to the porter for steering us to the restaurant!

I stopped in around 7:30, place was packed, but keep in mind there are about 8-10 tables total in the restaurant. I ordered the cod and made it a meal, adding mushy peas & a drink to the cod & fries (chips). While the fish was a large portion, I felt there was a lot of batter & didn't particularly... More
