We bought a couple of crab sandwiches and were unable to even take a bite. They smelled like rotten fish. Unfortunately the only thing we could do was throw them away. Weird that this place has excellent reviews - that's the reason we tried it....More

Popped in here for a kipper roll and was initially disappointed to hear that Jack and Linda had retired, but the new owners are keeping up the high standards. Nice new roles and excellent kippers. Good attentive service. Everything is cooked fresh. Will be returning.....

Rob and his team were very welcoming. The kipper rolls were fantastic. New owners but still great fresh seafood. Must visit them on the seafront in the fishing quarter!!

Jack & Linda's is the perfect spot for a quick, simple lunch on the beach. Hint: they're also just over the road from the Lanes, where a cheap easy lunch is especially hard to find... ALWAYS take the hot sandwich on the Specials board -...More

No. It's a tiny place in the arches. There are a few stools outside and a low wall by the beach. But great place for a seaside stop when hungry. Fresh, lovely fish.
