We visited on a spur of the moment on a Friday evening with 2 children. We were out of main holiday period so there was no issue with getting a table. The service was a little slow but very friendly, the children's food arrived in good time which was the most important thing avoiding unsightly melt-downs. The main meals when... More

Visited on a Friday night at about 8pm. Ordered 4 fish and chips. The place had run out of chips so they had to peel chop and cook the potato. From the time of ordering to actually receiving the food I had to wait one hour three minutes. The staff are really friendly and helpful but by the time I... More

We were recommended this place and it didn't disappoint. Beer battered fish and chips which were amazing, best mushy peas I've tasted! They do small, medium and large portions. I had the medium which was enormous! Good value for money. Ruth who works there is adorable. I can highly recommend this place if you're in Yarmouth.

Really nice simple restaurant that served both fish and chips along with slightly more restaurant style fish dishes . Certainly worth a visit when you are in Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight .

We had a wonderful meal here - tiger prawns, crab mornay, cod and chips, cornish sole and ice-cream! It was all well cooked and tasty and the portions were huge. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We recommend this place without hesitation

The food here is very very good and far exceeds your first impression and expectation. The decor and the feel of the place could do with a little attention as it doesn't seem to have had a lick of paint in years. Still worth a visit.

Twice I've been to Yarmouth and I've ended up here for dinner both times. Great seafood. Interesting specials board. The fish and chips seem very popular judging by the guests around us but at least one member of your party should have the whole crab and another should have the seafood platter. I promise you'll be taking pictures of your... More
