Long wait on a Saturday night for our take away but good quality fish and plentiful chips. Mushy peas a little suspect colour.....Good as an alternative to Steins

We don't often have fish and chips but when we do we always come here. I have the small fish and chips which is a perfect size for me - the fish batter is light and crispy and the chips good. The decor is great, the views lovely and the waiters and waitresses are very well trained - a joy... More

Average standard for take away fish and chips I'm sad to say as it has lots of excellent reviews. Quite expensive for fish and chips for 2. Appreciate the fact that their fish is msc certified but why is it not sourced locally?

When by the coast we always seek out the reasonably priced fresh fish menus. Harbour lights has a delightfully refreshing atmosphere overlooking the harbour. The menu is varied depending on the catches of the day. We have the small portions of fish with chips which with a cup of tea is ample if you want to leave room for pudding!... More

Harbour Lights specialises in fish and chips, and offers a dine in and takeaway service. I was happy with my meal of fish cakes, chips and salad with a glass of wine. The service was prompt, cheerful and efficient.

The portions were generous, well wrapped... More

Harbour Lights offers a great take-away service, and also sit-in dining in its restaurant, which looks out onto the water. During our visit, my sister and I opted to try out the restaurant. I decided on the traditional fish + chips + mushy peas, whilst my sister went for the vegetarian dish - neither of us were disappointed with our... More
