“A hidden away treat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

Went here for my cousins birthday. I had never been before and was very pleasantly surprised as I was expecting a typical "Barbican" pub but found a lovely, friendly pub with a restaurant feel and no drunks (apart from my cousin at the end of the night of course). Food was fantastic as well

First time here, we were looked after well, the beer was good quality and the food was very good. Only had fish and chips but it was excellent!

“A Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

We went to The Fisherman's Arms last night for a get together with friends. The food was delicious (you have to try the fabulous fish and Chips!) and well priced. The service was very professional yet friendly and we cannot wait to go back and sample some more of their gorgeous food. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area.
