Really appreciate the fact that we were advised beforehand that a wedding party were using main restaurant, this did in no way take away the service given to us by the waiting staff who served us lunch in the conservatory. The choice of items on the lunch menu would put a lot of dinner menus in the shade. Great value for money, hope to return soon. Food was first class. Seafood platter to die for.

Thank you for taking time out to write this review.

We had been concerned that service was not 100% on Saturday due to preparations for the wedding so your words have reassured myself Gary and the team that all was well.

We hope to see you in the restaurant again soon.

Gorgeous food, friendly staff, no long waits, intimate atmosphere without it being too small... my wife and I simply love the Fins and go there every time we can.

Outrageously brilliant seafood. Massive portions of freshly cooked exquisiteness. Mussels, not and cold seafood platters. Amazing value and quality. Don't forget to go to the shop either, for some of the best bread you can buy, never mind all the other must haves. Only small quibble is they don't have a table license at the monent due to an admin error, but you can buy wine from their shop (!). And they need to make the finger bowls bigger. Otherwise PERFECT!

If your looking to kick back, relax with friends with no effort from yourself but have the freshest Fish, langoustine, smoked salmon, squat lobster and all the trimmings to leave you wanting to book a table for your next visit then this is the place to be. Chef Gary and his Wife Lisa make you feel as if your long lost family upon your arrival. This place is a little dream .......... Xxxx

Discovered this place as we were driving by. We won't drive by again without popping in. Fish was delicious, staff were friendly and helpful and the prices were very reasonable for the quality of food.
