Found this restaurant on TripAdvisor and did not regret. Very tasty shrimps, prawns and cod - both in salad and with chips.

Cook's has a restaurant attached to its fish market. They serve delicious fried fish/ seafood salads / fries. I love their haddock fish & chips. It's great for a quick light dinner. They also provide take-out service.
