A group of 4 and 3 had different fish dishes and one beef and reef. All were cooked and presented perfectly and the service was spotless. Only regret was not having the seafood platter as several went past our table and the envy grew!

It was such an unusual flavour, we just loved it. Lots of seafood in it too. The double cooked chips were crispy all the way through, but not over cooked type crispy.

2 couples for casual dinner and found excellent cod & chips, good wine list and cheerful helpful service. Well worth visiting.
