We only wanted two teas, but appeared to be put in same queue as those wanting full cooked lunches. Bad attitude.

2 x cod specials, 2 x co, chips n mushy peas. We did worry as the table next had left and there was a fir bit left on their plates. Turns out that was because it was huge. The batter was fantastic and covering really chunky good sized slabs of perfectly cooked cod. Honestly some of the best we'd had... More

Been here very regular. As we live in the same village. Meals are awesome fresh and well presented. Staff happy and friendly. Excellent value for money. That's the restaurant side there is a chipshop next door which is equally as good. The food is awesome and cooked fresh. Really good staff. Friendly polite and happy to help all the time.

These were undoubtedly the best Fish & Chips I have ever tasted. We ended up going 3 times on our 2 week holiday. Grab some Fish & Chips and sit on the harbour wall watching dolphins

4 people for lunch. We had, from the Specials board, small cod (seemed big enough to us), chips, mushy or garden peas, bread and butter, choice of coffee or pot of tea. Excellent value at £6.50 for sit down meal. All food freshly cooked to order, and the fish was flaky in a good batter. Very efficient, friendly and attentive... More
