I have to say i wasn't expecting The Fishermans Arms to be as good as it was, definitely a pleasant surprise. We sat outside on a sunny September day after a dog walk on the beach. The pub was busy inside & out which was a good sign. - Pleasant waitress who was clearly rushed off her feet but always... More

What a good varied menu they put on in this lovely cosy restaurant. Plenty of space around the tables, good service. We were in a party of twelve family celebrating a birthday. Everyone had a different dish and ever meal looked delicious.I enjoyed the puddings and posted a couple of pics.

Lovely staff and the somewhat unusual bar/restaurant area has a nice ambience. The food was very good and reasonably priced. As were the drinks.

Another visit here for Sunday lunch & we will continue to go back for it. Still need to try the main menu though as always come here for a roast if we decide to eat out. We each had the different meats, my son had the gammon roast at the childs price & it was just the perfect size for... More

Have been to the Fishermans Arms many times for lunch, because it has a good menu and there are always some 'Specials'. When we visited recently for lunch it was virtually full and again the food didn't disappoint. The bar area is nicely decorated and the service as quick and friendly.

All the guests from far and near really enjoyed the afternoon and said it was the best food they had in a long time.We ate in a private dining room... More

Came here with a friend. I got the vegetarian curry which was far too salty but as someone else nearby also complained about their food being salty I'm guessing it's the chefs style. Curry was nothing special, a bit like those maysan curry packs I think. Was a Chinese curry rather than Indian either way. For dessert I got "warm"... More

I must declare an interest for all the above have been my past experiences plus events such as Burns Nights & my living their whilst becoming a Vickers Director. So this venue has been part of my 79 years & may it ever continue to be so.

Always a good and wide choice on the menu. Not had a bad meal here ever. It has the added advantage that it's one of the few places around here that's open on a Monday so can get busy then.
