It really smells of fish, it can be very inconsistent quality-wise- over greasy or really dry/not crispy enough. But I'm sure with good company and trusted the employees are kind the trip should be great!

more for the locals than the casual tourists, takes 30 min from city centre. However, beautiful food and all apparently sustainable. Very small place.

Never had a meal in but always get takeaway from here and was ridiculously surprised with how amazing the halloumi salad is. Every time I've had something from here I've been super impressed. Will always visit in future and recommend to anyone on Mill Rd.

I read all those brilliant reviews about this place. I went there with my son for lunch, the piece of fish I got was soaking in oil, and it had a test of old oil. My son’s was better. Not what I was expecting.

The restaurant and take away are in one area. I went in and the place got smoked out and I came away smelling of fryer fumes. I requested a skinless haddock and chips, I was told 7-10 minutes, 25 minutes later I felt like someone had forgotten the order. It wasn't a busy evening, and when I eventually received the... More

All seafood are good and reasonbly price. I recommend the seafood linguine. One downside is that there are many flies in the store - quite disturbing to have them flying around yr food.

Quite excited to see the SeaTree opening right next to the long established ABC chippy. It has tables that you can eat in, or get served like a restaurant. The shop is relatively busy at peak times, the fish display looks fresh and fantastic. So why only 2 stars I hear you ask? I have eaten there a few times... More

The fish here is always excellent, fresh and delicious but the chips are always a disappointment. They're always a bit hard and dry which is a real shame as it's put me off using the place.

This place is a restaurant, chippy, and fish shop all in one. Yet it doesn't feel like you're ever where you don't belong. The food is incredible. Fresh ingredients cooked simply to bring out their natural flavours, and no fancying it up with unnecessary bumph. I've been here several times with my partner, it's on of our favourite places to...
