We happened to come across whilst wandering around town. We wanted to try their breakfast, but soon discovered that it was latter than we thought.

Had lunch at this restaurant on a quite Sunday afternoon. A nice outdoor setting but took over an hour to receive a plate of fish & chips. The one plus was that the fish & chips were very tasty.

We were desperately looking for anywhere to go on Sunday for lunch when we came across a hive of activity in town. Certainly glad we stopped. Great smoothie with icecream and fish chips and salad were good too. My son enjoyed his milkshake and cheese burger. The menu was good and reasonably priced and the staff were very efficient ....

Raspberry and cokes are good but that was about it. Fish was horrible, batter was disgusting and fishing was dry. Waitress was rude and never smiled and looked like she didn't want to be there.
