then make it very clear on the menu this is the case for any size party. We came on Saturday night. The food was delicious, just the right size for a starter, I had the calamari, my husband had the mussels, which were enormous. We followed this with the cod wrapped in Serrano ham and the curried rice and haddock... More

Rude waiter walking away in the middle of the order( short hair, had tattoo on her hand). Pink undercooked chicken, that had to be sent back. Though the other waiter was really friendly and nice, why so much confusion as restaurant was not busy, was just us and another table. We ordered desserts, my friends got theirs and i sat... More

Came here with friends (five of us) for dinner on a Friday night. I skipped the starter but my partner had the scallops which were delicious. The salmon fishcakes were lovely and light. The brownie was rich but not too heavy. Lovely wine and a nice atmosphere, all made for a very pleasant evening.

With friends visiting from out of town we needed a good restaurant that was also gluten free, with so many places only offering lip services to Gluten free the Trip Adviser reviews of Fishers Restaurant read very well... We booked a few days in advance but as it was a Monday night there was probably no need to pre book... More

The restaurant has a nautical theme which sets the scene for its mainly fish menu. Service for us was excellent, the woman in charge of front of house was very good, and managed the many changes of tables well and kept Pi the pace all evening. The menu is unchallenging, with lots of comfort options; the choice of fish is... More

How they produce such a wonderful lunch for 12.95 is beyond me. Everything was absolutely delicious, fresh, well cooked and the service spot on. I had the trout pate followed by the Brisbane and my husband whiteboard and cod. My lemon posset was to die for. I loved the informal ambience and will defiantly be returning.

Nice well cooked fish, all fresh, but nothing I would say is overly special. Atmosphere of restaurant is very nice. However our waitress was very miserable and lacked any kind of service.
