This is primarily a fish restaurant but they do serve meat.
The menu is very varied and the fish is fresh. The waitors are attnetive but not over powering so the service is just right.
The restaurant is clean and tablecloths fresh with plenty of elbow room if you are in a large party.
Is quite expensive so not your average night out but lovely as a special treat

First time here today and what a lovely meal we had. I have friends who visit this place often and rave about it but I have always been put off trying here because I am not a fish lover. However, I came today and was pleasantly surprised as it is a lovely restaurant, the service was excellent and the food was cooked to perfection. I had a steak and it was so tasty. I will be visiting again.

Love smiths, we go as often as we can afford to. Costs about £150 for the full experience for 2 including alcohol. They do a cheaper lunch menu however, that is well worth a try as its delicious

We went to Smiths for a celebration meal on Monday 25th and enjoyed the experience greatly.

A warm welcome and straight to the table, plenty of time to study the menu and wine list, service was efficient and friendly, the food cooked beautifully and served piping hot, the resturant filled up quickly and had a good atmosphere.

We will return to experience this again.
