“Delicious fresh fish and chips”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2011

Delicious and would certainly reccommend. Only downside is value, small portions for big prices £13.00 for two medium fish and chips, however very tasty so we would certainly return.

“Excellent food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2011

We live quite close to an award winning fish and chip shop so are quite fussy about our fish and chips. Thankfully we were not disappointed! The restaurant was busy so we had to wait a little while to order but it was well worth it. The food was hot, fresh and delicious.
We went on carnival night so it was getting particularly busy as we left but people obviously knew the food was worth waiting for! If I couldn't get seated I would certainly order takeaway and sit in the gardens across the road to eat rather than miss out :o)

“Good fish n chips, good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2011

Pretty much what you expect from a fish and chip shop on the inside. The food is good, and it's good value for the fisherman's special, which comes with a cup of tea. We had exactly the same food at a place on the harbour, without the tea, and it was dearer and nowhere near as nice.
