Fresh and hot

Husband and I had a great meal here. Had the chowder which was a twist on the usual creamy affair and was tomato based with a touch of chilli. This was followed by the seafood pasta which was delicious: hot, full of squid, prawns, baby octopus and mussels,etc. Lovely creamy sauce with ribbon pasta... read more

I've eaten here quite often now and have always had a great experience, the food is delicious, well presented and the service is friendly, and mostly very prompt.

Food is always good here but last Friday we thought we had the best fish and chips we'd ever tasted, along with the shared side order of mushy peas (plenty for 2). The atmosphere may be unremarkable but the service is always very efficient and the food is consistently good. I have had the grilled lemon sole here before and... More

A large group of us had lunch here a couple of weeks ago. The staff were so helpful, going the extra mile to give us all individual bills. Food as ever was excellent, the lunchtime express menu is very reasonable and larger portions than expected. It says volumes that the place was busy on a wet Tuesday lunchtime in January.... More

Service Good, Value poor when you consider that you can eat a carvery meal locally for half the price! Whitebait was cooked to oblivion and no where near enough portion size.. They were simply over cooked. My wife thoroughly enjoyed her Seaford Chowder. But one tiny piece of bread ! No butter?? Mains Both had Cod, the chips were heavenly... More

My husband and I popped in following a recommendation from a friend. We wanted an alternative venue to a traditional pub meal or regional cuisine. The menu was well thought out and offered a great range of fish plus some meat & veggie choices. I would recommend the chef specials, I had the Red Snapper kebab which was served with... More
