Had the moby dick and it was perfect, batter was light and crispy. Kids had chicken goujons which were equally tasty. Nice smiley staff and good coffee, Bravo!

A bit expensive as compared to others but as they say you get what you pay for. Cod is fresh make sue you get a thick piece it's like a steak

Lovely food, friendly staff but a bit pricey we felt and also the restaurant isn't very comfortable, very open and echos! Would rather just have the take away I think. Second visit that they have run out of things too.
