Nice and cheap traditional fish and chips and also good seafood. It really nice to be able to sit inside and somewhere where it is clean. It is the perfect stop whilst doing a road trip in the Shetlands.

Went for the novelty and photo opp, but really enjoyed sitting out on the terrace and thought the food was delicious. Brilliant choice on the menu, especially all the extras - breaded mushroom and mushy peas were highlights. Lovely staff.

Called in about 6.30pm and waited a little while for a table as it was so busy. Really fresh fish served by excellent staff. Lots of take out orders being sold so the locals know what's good for them. Highly recommended.
