“The chef is an artist.”
Reviewed July 26, 2013 via mobile

We wanted a quick bite to eat on our way home from Baltimore. The chef came out and advised that the fish (Megrim sole) would be best pan-fried, as it was so delicate it would be overcooked by the time batter was fully cooked. We wanted to share a portion of chips, and were asked if we would like to have salad (also split). The chips were perfect -hot, crisp golden outside, fluffy inside. The salad was clean, in beautiful miniarure pieces and lightly dressed. The fish was delicious - lightly browned, edges slightly crisp snd flesh succulent. Service was attentive and engaging, but not intrusive. All in all, the best fish and chips I can remember EVER eating out. You can park in the churchgrounds opposite, up to 6:30pm.

“Fresh with Big Portions”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

We paid a visit here over Easter weekend. We were quite hungry, and they appeared just to have opened when we arrived.

The waitress welcomed us, took our orders: 2 Haddock, and one House Burger. All dishes were delicious, plenty of chips were in evidence, and she came back to us later asking if we wanted more of them. We declined, as we were alrready full.

The place is spotlessly clean - well worth a visit, and we will return again.

“Delicious”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

Nice location in town center, attractive, couples,, singles, & family friendly restaurant and take out, delicious fresh dinner. We were impressed with the cleanliness and the very cheerful, competent staff - not least because we observed the graceful way our server approached a group of four, prepared to take their drink orders, that "as one is driving, I'll only serve three.. which of you is the driver?" A commitment to the spirit, not just the letter of the law!
