Enjoyable , tasty, filling meal . Had the 'chowder' with haddock Kiev as seen gd reviews for this & it didn't disappoint. Followed by sea bass & scallops (sl overdone but tasty). Partner had oysters & skate wings ,both cooked nicely. Overall pleasant experience & William was as entertaining as promised!

The food is divine, the service is good, and so it is a wonderful place for a fantastic night out. It was really nice food and my lobster was to die for. We shall go there again.

Yet again a lovely meal for adults and children. The baked crab specials were delicious and the mussels, thai fishcakes, chowder and haddock kiev's are to die for! Some of the other reviews have criticised the prices, but fresh fish / seafood is expensive and actually the prices here are very reasonable for what you get on your plate. Most... More

Chose this restaurant as we were limited in choice if wanting a fish restaurant as opposed to fish and chip's. It was quiet on the evening we went to the restaurant, and we initially thought this may be a reflection of the quality of food. However we were pleasantly surprised. The food was good quality and freshly cooked with some... More

Great food, ambiance and excellent service. Good value too. We've been here on three previous occasions (quite a while ago), this time it was my birthday. Same owner, but better than ever. I agree with all the previous positive reviews. Highly recommended.

As a family group of three generations we received a friendly introduction from gregarious owner William. Enjoyed a varied fish menu. The haddock 'Kiev' is divine! And lovely fresh fish chowder. Giant fish & chips. Tasty lobster Thermidor. Good value and attentive service. We would definitely come back!
