While visiting Family in Grimsby met with my two sister and brother in law. Had a lovely quiet meal in the Trawlerman in Cleethorpes. Food was very well cooked, tasty and good value for money. Lovely setting, the building is spotlessly clean. Good pint and very pleasant surroundings. Overall great value.

Go for the carvery - It does what it advertises - Good food - plenty of it - you won't go hungry. Gets very busy though in season because it's popular.

We visited as a party of 5 adults and a child on a Thursday night, we booked a table for 19:00 and upon arrival we were shown straight to our table. The carvery was hot and plentiful, my only negative is my Grandaughter who is 3 was very disappointed there was no broccoli.
