Amazing meal on Tuesday night with my wife at the Fishermans Arms. We both had the brisket and loved it. If I am ever back in the area I will pay another visit.

Our first visit of 2017 and the choice, quality and service was as good as ever. There are many reasons why we like going to the Fishermans Arms for lunch: there is always a 'specials' sheet in addition to the standard menu - which also has some great dishes; the menu has 'smaller portions for those with a small appetite;...

A group of us booked Christmas lunch here and we were not disappointed. The food was delicious, and the service very good. We were given lots of time to chatter and enjoy each other's company, without feeling rushed at all. Excellent food at reasonable prices. Thankyou very much for a lovely lunch.

Had family visiting and decided to go for the early bird Christmas menu. All of us had an excellent meal. No complaints or negative comments from anyone. The food was delicious and the service was friendly. At £18 for 3 courses it was excellent value, restaurant standard for bar meal prices. We often go for the regular early bird meals... More

Went with great expectations for a fantastic meal which turned into a disaster. Met by efficient staff, shown to or table, ordered drinks, I had a pint of beer, which was pretty poor, bad start.! The meal menu looked really good, for myself I ordered Broccoli and cheese soup which was delicious till I found 2 pieces of cellophane in... More

I tried to book here on lots of occasions always full. When I finally managed to secure a room I have been here for 7weeks +. So if that is not an indication of the quality of this establishment then don't know what is . Your hosts as well as the excellent staff will make you fell at home another... More

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.
