I have heard many good reviews about this restaurant. The starter was good but the main course was disappointing. I ordered the cod & chips. The batter was dry and tasted of breadcrumbs rather than a true batter. The fish was a bit on the dry side.

What can I say, from stepping through the main door - you can see that this is a 'swanky' restaurant by the decor & smells coming from the kitchen. Great place for couples or families with real attentive service, fantastic food - a seafood paradise, with really good prices. Cant say anymore !!!

I love the Fish Factory, since being diagnosed as a coeliac eating out has sometimes become a chore rather than a pleasure. Not all restaurants understand the importance of there being NO wheat or gluten in my food and I have often encountered the attitude of 'well we'll do our best but it isn't our fault you are odd!!!' Not... More

Visited with my aunt and wife. My wife and I had grilled haddock with mashed potatoes which was delicious. However my aunt's scampi was served with thick chips that were rather leathery in texture. I assume the chips were twice cooked? In which case I know it can be challenging to get the exterior cooked just right when they are... More

Decided to go back for another try at this restaurant, after previously walking out after waiting for an hour for a meal, which still hadn't arrived. Well, what a change! Staff couldn't have been more attentive, from pouring our wine to checking if meal was ok. Meal arrived in reasonable time, lovely food, cooked to perfection. I had the grilled... More

I wasn't much of a fish fan until recent years. I went into the Fish Factory as I was told their food was to die for and it wasn't a lie. I'll admit, I plunged for the simple option of the battered cod with chips while my mum had the fish cakes that I had been considering. The food came... More
