We had the three course set menu. Starters and pudding were great. Mains were a bit small but very tasty. Good price for the meal.

Called in here looking for somewhere to eat that evening and expecting a fish and chip restaurant. How wrong! Returning in the evening we were shown upstairs and were treated to a wonderful fish menu and superb service. Look forward to returning one day.More

When so many restaurants close it is re-assuring that Fishers is still here. Perhaps that is because they are very very good at what they do. Excellent fish and fine waiting. Above all I rather like the idea of being able to add a glass...More

Like the others said, depending on your age and ability/desire to walk, a no. 8 bus or a taxi is the best bet. Enjoy your meal there though. The food will be worth it.
