Stopped with my wife for some seafood lunch and I must admit that we got more than we bargained for. The fish and chips was well worth the money that we paid. Sizeable servings well spiced made all the difference. We will return

We had a nice seafood meal at Trawlers and we bought also some takeaways. Average but affordable prices. Service was excellent and I highly recommend this listing for sit down or take away.

Easy access for a quick seafood lunch takeaway or sit down. Great food and location. Fish and calamari a great family option within budget

The food is not all that ! i would rather go to Ooskus Fisheries much better value and the food is always good . The area especially at night does not offer safety. The staff are not friendly and lack basic etiquette skills.

We have seating for 70 people, but feel free to take your meal to the beach where you can feed any left overs to the seagulls.We do not have a liquor license but you are more than welcome to bring your own wine. On windy days,we can close our blinds and Trawlers becomes wind free and cozy. In winter we have gas heaters that will keep you warm.We have debit and credit card facilities
