Came here as we won a voucher at the keel row in a raffle for £20. We came on a Wednesday which we didn't realise you get three tapas and a bottle of wine included. Lovely atmosphere inside. Small menu but a wide variety of...More

The Fish Quay fair is closing down next weekend, so time is running out to grab yourself a bargain. To the reviewer who said that some of the stall holders were miserable - that was probably why they were a little off par.

Absolutely a waste of time. Nobody manning nearly all stalls. I was sick of being told to go look for the owner each time I wanted an item. Silly beggar prices. One young kid about eleven, tried to charge me a tenner for a pound...More
