Beautiful fresh fish, and chips were so tasty! We had peas and curry sauce which complimented a perfect fish supper watching the river! Highly recommend

We went to this fantastic town last year as part of our holiday and although my wife always attempts to steer me away from fish and chip shops she failed to stop me going in to this superb eatery. We had take away with the idea of taking them to the car to eat them but having pinched a chip... More

Good fish and chips, homemade tartar sauce, nice pot of tea, just opposite harbour. Really enjoyed our lunch and great value compared to London prices.

My partner and I were staying locally for a few nights so popped along for lunch. The service was very friendly and warm but we, having dreamt of seaside fish n chips, were rather disappointed by the cod which was far from freshly caught. Generally you enjoy the fish in its entirely but ours was a small loin (mine without... More

I am sorry that you did not enjoy your meal,however i am confused as to what it is that you are saying,you state that you normally enjoy a fish in its entirety,all fish and chip shops batter fillets of fish not whole fish. yes it is very quiet this time of year but that does not effect the freshness or...

Really enjoyed fish and chip meal with my family in the resturant. Lovely meal, couldn't find any faults with it. Fish was great, batter light and even enjoyed the chips (don't normally eat chips). Friendly staff, good service and clean restaurant. We will be back.

Visited here twice now, and I've always found the fish and chips to be excellent. The fish is cooked in a light and non-greasy batter which doesn't drown out the flavour of the fish like the usual stodgy chip-shop batter. My partner enjoyed his beetroot and goat's cheese burger. Portion sizes are decent and the service was good. We've always... More

Delicious crab sandwiches and tasty chips. But pricy but great location and ideal if you have dogs. Added bonus of being licensed.
