Huge portions of fresh haddock with light batter, small fish tea is one huge fillet with the usual accompaniments, staff are friendly and cheerful, decor in Barbara Cartland' favourite is a must see.

The haddock supper consists of two fillets - each of which are bigger that some of the fillets I have gotten in other fish & chip shops! I have had many fish & chip suppers in my time, but this was the first I struggled to finish, and that includes so-called "jumbo" portions from other takeaways. Just to illustrate, the... More

Stopped for coffee and a scone which was nice and not overly priced, good value. Decor is very interesting which sparked a discussion with the staff. Will stop in again when we are heading up the coast.

If you come here for your tea, don't bother eating lunch. In fact, if you're going the full hog, starve yourself for a week. The quantities are huge, the quality excellent and the staff lovely.

took our nephew in for dinner because we had said it was a great place to eat, large portions if you are a big eater, the special Fish tea is a must if you're hungry, have yet to try the seafood platter which looks great, always good service,

This is a restaurant which believes in large portions - and quality is very reasonable. Not haute cuisine but certainly a good meal. The tables are a bit close to each other, and seating was not very comfortable. The interior decor is a bit quirky. Staff are friendly and helpful.

Massive portions of fresh fish, proper chips, desert, cake, etc. You will need a big appetite. Good value for money.

Had lunch at LaMirage. Prawn sandwich was larger than expected and very good. Staff was very pleasant and attentive. Service was good and prices were reasonable. Restaurant is comfortable with pleasant atmosphere. Décor is rather eclectic, but interesting. Would dine here again. Don't miss a good meal, have lunch or dinner here.

We were told about this place when we were up working in the area and it was highly recommended. We ordered the small fish tea and OMG it was the size of an extra large . And it was amazing! We will be back in before we go home .
