Once again we had the pleasure of dinning at Rick Steins. If you love high end food at reasonable prices then this is the place for you. The menu caters for most tastes (meat and fish) and the drinks menu also provides a wide range of wines that would cater for most tastes and suit most budgets. I had the... More

Great place, food was amazing and the service was faultless. It is a little expensive but you get what you pay for.

Otter than the queues for take-always, it is impossible not to love the fish and chips from here, even in the pouring rain. Not a famous chef gimmick, but top nosh!

Booked lunch for my wife and I. Nice friendly welcome when we arrived and very attentive staff. Nice atmosphere in the restaurant too. Food was very good. The fish, as you would expect, was excellent. Big disappointment was the dessert. I had the Tiramisu. No taste! Had it in Italy many times - this was just bland! Otherwise very good... More

Definitely worth a visit. Brilliant food - my first time trying lobster and I was not let down! Succulent and flavoursome. The excellent service was an added bonus. The waiter was extremely friendly and catered to our needs. To add, he had a good knowledge about the fish and flavours of each dish. 10/10 - a real treat.

We had the best fish and chips we have ever tasted! The service was good. There was a varied menu and next time we visit, we will be trying a different choice of meal as they all looked fantastic. Best to book well in advance.
