We decided it was time for fish and chips and based on the recommendation of a local and confirmation by Tripadvisor we went to Quinlans. While being seated, the order for the table next to ours was being served. The portions were huge so we decided to share an order, but were informed that was not possible - each person... More

Hello flylikeahawk, Thank you for your review. Due to the limited size of our premises you can understand that we have to try to maximise our seating,so this policy is made clear on our menus.,Our fish cakes are made by hand so the ratio of fish may differ slightly but is always about half unfortunately this varies and I apologise...

Hello benlouise, Thank you for your review however I am disappointed you didn't ask one of us on your visit to rectify your distaste. We also have comment cards in which I try to address any issues that arise. Your posting is very non-descript so I have difficulty in rectifying it. Regards, Liam. More

We ordered the lobster salad and fried calamari. And were really pleasantly surprised when the staff (or was it the boss?) agreed to prepare the salad the way we wanted. They were very accommodating. Thumbs up! We requested for the salad to be served separate from the lobster so that we could enjoy the lobster as a whole. Our decision... More
