This has to be the best place in Plymouth for a fun meal, atmosphere and fish. I love fish as a Coeliac sufferer and the staff are knowledgeable, nor fazed by people like me and lightning fast on service. Come here!

Clam chowder thick with potatoes, rich with cream and packed with clams and crispy bacon. Crab and Prawn salad, huge with fresh brown and white crab meat, served with as much crusty bread as you like and whatever... More

I have been visiting this place for 30 years and I still enjoy the basic atmosphere combined with good basic fresh fish dishes. However a little known secret is that if you order the day before these guys will serve you an amazing fruit de mer. its a joy to sit near the window and watch the barbican nightlife wake... More
