Simply fabulous fish and chips. The fishing boats are right outside the windows. Light and airy interior, friendly service, it's all good! Super fresh fish, crispy coating, heat chips, all cooked to perfection in clean fry oil. Generous portions, low prices. Worth a visit!

I haven't tasted rock eel in years and there it was on the menu. Brought back child hood memories and still as delicious. No soggy batter and the chips had crispy outsides and soft inners. Staff friendly so much so that when we couldn't locate...More

Sorry, I've no idea. I've never seen any dogs there but that doesn't mean they don't. Just call and check. Hopefully for you they will.

Here at Maggie's we're in our third decade of serving you hearty portions of the freshest fish, cooked to order, in a warm and welcoming cafe - the same traditional family-friendly approach as when Margaret Banfield first put her name above the door. We're right on the Fisherman's Beach - so you'll enjoy some spectacular views while you tuck in to our fish, direct from the market below us and our specials are straight off the boats with the morning catch - keeping a carbon footprint of less than 20 miles. You can't get fresher than that! Maggie's is licensed too, so you can enjoy a glass of wine or a beer with your meal. We are open six days a week, but it's advisable to call us ahead to reserve your table, and if you've got a special occasion, we welcome parties of up to 40 guests.
