“Grimsby”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

Grimsby is what it is - currently a very run down town in NE lincs - I know I'm originally from there. The council need to put some money into renovation that ius required all around the town. Freeman Street and the fish docks are now an utter disgrace - something needs to be done - SOON!!!

“Memories”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

Have taken my in-laws and children, friends from wrong side of pennines and family from wrong side of Humber Bridge.
Always found it excellent. Tour on Tiger is a must. My family were all fishermen, great to understand what they had to endure in trying to earn a wage.
Kids have never moaned about it!! must be good.
Very educational and worth the money.
Cafe also very good.
