Went for dinner here on a Tuesday night and it was fairly quiet. All three members of the group enjoyed their food. You could tell the fish was fresh and the chips were delicious!! Friendly staff and an attractive decor.

We went with a Groupon voucher and had the seafood platter for two. We were so impressed with the obvious freshness of the fish, presentation and also the amount. Service was also very attentive. Recommend.
