Held across two evenings every month, the Billingsgate Fish Night offers an extensive - but affordable - fish menu, ranging from lobster and other shellfish to fresh fish such as sea bass or Dover sole. If you are taking someone who's not so keen on fish, there are some meat/veggie options too.

I recently enjoyed a fabulous dinner at The Fox Inn. We went with two other couples and everything we ordered was perfect! The Mixed Grill Seafood dinner I had was perfect and I would definitely recommend it to anyone. Service was amazing and they were more than willing to cater to any of our individual changes to the menu, even... More
