An ideal stop for a quick, cheap lunch with the kids whilst shopping. Sushi for Mum, Calamari for Dad and fresh fish and chips for the kids, who thankfully, get distracted by the playground or games room, while the adults eat.

We have been a John Dory's many times, especially for the family restaurant atmosphere. Let's face it, it is a chain restaurant (part of the Spur family), and one should not expect "fine cuisine" when eating there. On most nights, the quality is fair and in line with expectations. On busy days, line cooks are pressed for quantities rather that quality, service seems hectically busy but in a total disarray, poor control at the pass, and you end up with oil-sogged overcook fish. This is not based on a once off experience. We have learnt out lesson: Go there on quieter days :)
