Went for the novelty and photo opp, but really enjoyed sitting out on the terrace and thought the food was delicious. Brilliant choice on the menu, especially all the extras - breaded mushroom and mushy peas were highlights. Lovely staff.

Called in about 6.30pm and waited a little while for a table as it was so busy. Really fresh fish served by excellent staff. Lots of take out orders being sold so the locals know what's good for them. Highly recommended.
