I visited the otter and the fish with family for a meal and drinks. We all had 3 courses and the food and service was great. We sat in the bar afterwards and felt it was nice and cosy. I would revisit

We have been going to this restaurant since just before it was transformed to its current standard.We have had Lunches,Dinners and Early Bird Menus.I cannot remember being disappointed with the food but was sorry when for a while they stopped doing the beautiful curry.However i see it is back.Hurrah.

The staff are really helpful and efficient.Good job we do not live next door or I would never cook!!
Well done Otter and Fish.

“Great atmosphere”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

Our food was lush. I was a little bit disappointed at first as I really fancied the garlic mushrooms from the early bird menu which the first waitress said I could still order from and pay the individual price, the second waitress said this was not possible as stopped serving those dishes at 6pm ( surely if they were in the kitchen I could buy them) any how this meant I had to choose something else. Mmm thy did me a favour I had king prawns to start, which ere lovely. He place has a great atmosphere, will def be returning
