Was a daily occurrence to drop into Traders for a drink. Staff very friendly and today we even watched two whales off the shore

Great fan of traders for years, so this visit was hopefully an abberation. My wife and a friend ordered the swordfish after we all had the superb chowder. Luckily I had a very good pizza and not the fish. Within about 3 hours of the meal both swordfisheaters had the runs . severely! My friendly already commented it had tasted funny in the restaurant. The waiting staff didn't seem interested in our table after bringing out the food and didn't ask if we were happy or needed anything else (and it wasn't busy). Unusual as we have always had great service and food there so far but the fish was off - sorry guys and a bit more attention please even if customers dress casual as looks can be deceiving :-)

Well I was looking forward to coming here from the reviews but my fish was tiny but did have a good crumb coating it. Salad was boring and gross dressing and there wasn't many chips put on the plate. Overall expensive and left hungry.
