“Take away food with an OK view”
Reviewed 3 September 2011

Straight to the point - the food was yum, service cr*p, and view okay.
This isn't a "sit down for a good feed" place; it's take away fish & chip shop, plain and simple.
Don't come here expecting to be wined and dined, because the plastic tables are there to hold your cardbored boxes full of chips, not romance you.
I'd come here again, but get take out and eat it infront of the Telly at the hotel.

“Soggy Chips but fresh seafood”
Reviewed 24 August 2011

Well setup in a nice location. The chips were quite soggy but the fresh seafood made up for this.
I recommend this place purely on it's location and price.
The staff I dealt with weren't that friendly (maybe because it was a peak time). But that shouldn't deter someone looking for a good feed.

“Simply the Best Fish and Chips, plus Service. How any Business should Run”
Reviewed 11 July 2011

Dine in, or Take Away, we found the Lighthouse Seafood Takeaway one of the best places to purchase Fish and Chips. Our last visit was on July 9th 2011, we went with our Family of 6, four adults and 2 children. It was extremely busy, as was lunch time with many tourists plus locals, ordering and eating there.

We thought that we would have to wait at least half an hour, but to our surprise, it was more like nine minutes. The fish and chips were hot, freshly cooked and served in a lined box, with lemon and 'free' tomato sauce!

The portions were large and so was very good value for money. Not one of us threw any portion away, we all said it was simply the best fish and chips we had ever eaten, and could not stop eating them until they were all gone.

Thoroughly recommend the Lighthouse to travellers and locals, you won't be disappointed.
