If you love fresh fish and seafood (is fish seafood? I'm never quite sure), then Hooked is for you. If you don't, though, it's not - there's no chicken-in-a-basket alternative here for the non-fishy folk! Efficient service (may be a little too swift for some)...More

My family and I had a great time at this highly regarded restaurant. The food was of an excellent standard and each dish clearly had a lot of attention and expertise from the chef. We would love to return.

This visit was the second time we had tried to get in, the last time it was unfortunately booked, so we were very pleased when they had space! Small venue with limited menu, but don't let that put you off as everything is executed superbly....More
