Great fish and good size portions but honestly such a bad marketing exercise.. Why not charge 10c more per person hidden in your menu and include all you condiments! Ketchup is so cheap but people are so sick of all the extra costs....!! I also...More

I have been going to the Old Trout for years. We don't get fish and chips often but I have never been disappointed. Crispy chips, big servings of juicy fish and crunchy batter. We get two servings for 3 people.

Great fish and chips, grilled fish is excellent and also a selection of takeaway meals in the fridge to take home and heat. Right next door to the Cork and Bottle, convenient for a sip while you wait for the fish to be cooked.
