Description: Pinnacles Famous Fish Restaurant has a very friendly atmosphere with efficient and welcoming staff. Specialising in Fish and Chips but also offering healthy salads, pasta dishes and children's meals. Celebrity chefs 'The Hairy Bikers' are on record as nominating Pinnacles as their favourite fish and chips. Come and try our new hand boned fish, cooked in a special batter that is simply delicious with our superb chips. Open all year round, there is a generous takeaway section and a separate, newly refurbished restaurant with enough seating for large groups. Our new manager has recently updated all food production methods and greatly improved our overall offer. We have been in business for over twenty years and look forward to welcoming you to our restaurant. Opening times: 11am to 7.00pm/9.00pm every day from 1st March to 30th September depending on the weather. From 1st October to 28th February the hours will vary, so it's always best to phone the restaurant for details.

“Good fish, good prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2013 via mobile

This is a quality fish bar located in Seahouses, we had tried most fish bars in the area, but this was definitely the leader of the pack as far as seaside food is concerned in the area. The fish and chips served are good tasting and good portion sizes. As recommended by the Hairy Bikers, if you fancy fish and chips and you're near Seahouses, Pinnacles is the place to be!

The description of your fish and chips bears no relation to the kind of product that we serve at Pinnacles. It sounds to me that you have posted this critique about the wrong restaurant Brian. If you had returned to Seahouses I’m sure you would have realised your mistake.

“Mind-blowing fish and chips”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013 via mobile

I'm not going to lie, I'm quite ambivalent about fish and chips, but my friend was keen, so here we were. Wow. Meaty, delicious haddock in a light yet VERY tasty batter. This was a million miles away from the tasteless hunks of deep-fried fat that my parents made me eat on Fridays. The chips were perfect and the tartare sauce finished everything off nicely. Even those of you wary of battered fish should give Pinnacles a go, it was just what we needed on this sunny autumn day

“Good enough for the hairy bikers, it's good enough for us!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

This place was recommended to us when we said we were going to visit Seahouses for a boat trip to see wild seals. It's nothing special inside, just basic but clean and the staff are friendly and most importantly, the fish and chips were delicious and good value - what more could you want?

“Great Fish and Chips”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

Seahouses possesses two of the best fish and chip shops in the country - this being one of them. The restaurant is very clean and the service very friendly. Most importantly the fish and chips never let you down.
