Hidden away where you might not find it down by the harbour, this was an excellent 'locals' fish and chip shop. There are stairs needed to get to it so might not suit the infirm.

It is of the 'nothing fancy', 'cheap and cheerful' variety with very good food, and tea served in mugs. The staff were lovely and cheerful and the food was served in good time.

There are views out to harbour as per the name, and you can even step out onto the small outside gallery and take a few photos of the locals unloading their fish catches if you are lucky!

We've eaten at Rick Stein's in Padstow and the Magpie in Whitby. These fish and chips are as good. Cooked in beef dripping with lovely fresh fish in light crispy batter closer to Japanese tempura than the soggy greasy batter you get in many chip shops. Unpretentious place for locals tucked away in the harbour but worth seeking out. They're friendy as well and make a lovely cup of tea. If you want no-frills excellent fish and chips give it a try. I will have to go back for breakfast. They looked amazing as well.

Called the other day whilst walking around the drive for brunch. Had been recommended by a friend and not disappointed. Cheap and cheerful. Staff excellent, very courteous and pleasant and looked after us well. Breakfast was great, three of us, son had "belly buster", I had "medium" and my wife "small", clean plates by all, and tea was very good. The views over the harbour are different. Well worth a visit.
