Superbly cooked fish and chips with bread and butter and a pot of tea. Don't miss it! They also offer a superb value set meal as well as an a la carte menu.

Yes we have grilled fish which can come with either a tomato and basil pesto or chilli and coriander pesto, also our chips are cooked separate from the fish so they are also okay for gluten free. Thanks, Luca Tailend... More
