“Quality of fish was variable.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2014 via mobile

My wife and I ate in the comfortable and well sited restaurant just by the harbour bridge. We had previously popped in and asked if they had skate as it was not on the menu. We were delighted to find that it was available and said that we would be back in an hour. When we returned we were remembered by the friendly staff. My wife enjoyed her skate and chips but mine was not good as it was very dry and somewhat overlooked. The chips were to our liking and the batter was crisp and tasty. The portions were large and good value.

“very average unfortunately....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014 via mobile

We had haddock and chips, unfortunately there was skin on the fish, why couldn't they ask whether I wanted skin on or skinless?...and the chips were just fried frozen crinkle chips...batter was a bit over oily/soggy too signalling to me that maybe the oil wasnt hot enough or the batter had been made up too thick, it wasnt because i visited at a busy time either, the restaurant and takeaway part were both quite empty. very surprised as this place has some quite good reviews, I was fairly disappointed by the experience, just because Hugh fearnley whittingstall and jedward have visited there once it doesn't make it anything special! And Mr whittingstall was only there to try and make them and others stock mackerel because of dwindling cod stocks in the oceans. I recommend people go to seachef instead. I do agree I am a bit of a fish and chip aficionado, but honest this wasn't very good, I'm being nice giving this an average score. Shame

“Standard does change”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2014 via mobile

Standard does change from Friday to Saturday nights
Friday nights is the best
Saturday tends to be less chips or salad

Thanks for taking the time to write a review. You are of course entitled to your opinion however we strive to provide consistency on portion sizes, quality and quantity seven days a week, 51 weeks of the year. Friday & Saturday Nights are of course our busiest nights of the week in general. This of course could have been due to a mistake, please in future ask the person serving you if you feel that something is amiss. Many thanks
