We lucked into Mitchell's after finding all else on the street too busy or too much like bar food. It was recommended by The Quay House. This is a real restaurant with fresh fish NOT fried and served with french fries and beer They made room for us among the locals upstairs; all were family groups celebrating something. We were...

This is a favourite of mine in Cliften and has become part of the tradition to have lunch here at Easter and October bank holiday weekends. Fish dishes of all shapes and sizes are exquisite as well as their soups and open sandwiches. In fact any dish here will not disappoint.

Had the most delicious dinner here on the October bank holiday weekend. Best fish I had in a very long time. Crab, scallops all cooked to perfection. Great ambience and service second to none.

My wife and I paid another visit to Mitchell's (Oct 30th 2015). As usual we found it very welcoming, warm and cosy and with a fast and efficient service. As usual Mitchell's was packed to the gunnel's, thankfully we had booked our table well in advance. While there and enjoying a very high standard of food we couldn't help notice... More

Arrived with two kids on a Saturday afternoon without reservation. Warmly welcomed by friendly host who recommended several dishes. Fish pie was excellent followed by a fantastic creme brulee. We also had scampi and kids had chicken guojons & chips. Lovely cosy decor and warm friendly atmosphere. Bill was very reasonable. Well worth a visit

The restaurant is not particularly child friendly, we felt quite awkward for the first few minutes and several times considered leaving, despite visiting early in the evening. The waiter... More
