We chose to go here on a wet windy day during our stay in Southwold. We walked down from the Common where we were staying clutching our wine bread and salad. We selected our fish rather than have just one of the set platters. The fish was superb and we had a table in the window looking out back to the Common. We did have to eat in our coats as there did not appear to be any heating in the place. We bought some fish from the shop to take home with us. We decided not to have coffee in the smoke shop next door as that too was open to the elements. We walked back to Southwold for a hot drink. Anyone who likes fish must experience this place.

A super quirky little place to eat. We took our own wine and bread seafood is delicious.It is very reasonably priced, staff are very helpful and friendly. Have been before and will definitely go again it can get very busy in high season.

We have now eaten here about half a dozen times. We usually travel about an hour to get here but it is certainly worth the drive. A small rustic place selling deliciously fresh fish. Not a place for anyone that isn't a fish lover as they do not sell anything else. Take your own bread butter wine and salad - they will provide you with glasses and a corkscrew. It is a very cold place as it really is just a glorified fishermans hut - however well worth the visit. The fresh fish is outstanding the staff very pleasant - all in all a wonderful experience. We will definitely be back.

A must if you love seafood. Well priced, friendly service. Take your own bread, butter, wine. Great value. You can just pop in and buy local catch fresh on the day. Highly recommend.

Have bought fish from here before and wanted to try eating in.

Staff very happy to let you pick and choose your platter, can keep ordering if you want. Price was fair and fish was brilliant.

We took a few bottles of wine and some bread and lemon and it was perfect.

Great atmosphere really due to the surroundings, always wanted to find a place like this and now I have! Couldn't do it everyday but this is a place you can impress friends!
