Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I am leaving this as my first ever review on trip advisor as I wanted to let someone know how great the young male and female staff were today . They were juggling a full pub on a busy lunch and still found time to be lovely and pleasant to my mum and I . Food was great piping hot generous portions good value . Would definitely go again

Decided to pop out to try the Fisherman's and the 50% scheme. Greated on entry by friendly staff and seated safely within seconds. Within a few minutes our drinks order was taken (at the table - Although you could order at the bar... with only 1 person allowed there at a time.) Drinks we're perfect.. fairly priced and served in the correct style of glasses for the drinks. Food order was taken from quite a varied menu. All freshly made. None of the frozen rubbish of chain pubs! We chose off the light bite menu (which turned out to be pretty huge!!!). Haddock goujons and doubled cooked chips with mushy peas/flat iron steak wrap with salad and homemade beetroot slaw. Extra chips and onion rings on the side. (The onion rings were real! In beautiful batter!) The service was attentive. A little wait do for the meals.. but cooked to order and a busy bar.. something we expected. The food was amazing quality. Very fresh and generous. The chefs are chefs.. not cooks. No sign of chef Mic! Lol. We were asked during the meal if everything was ok.. and if more drinks were required. A sign of attentive service. When we paid the bill was under £20. Not bad for 4 drink and 2 meals. We were thanked by 3 different members of staff.. and left feeling happy and full. Covid measures were in place.. and customers were reminded about this. We felt safe. The place is clean and tidy, with plenty of opportunities to wash or sanatise hands. 100% recommend here for great food, drinks and service.

We booked a meal for "eat out to help out" while were on holiday in Cleethorpes and we weren't disappointed. There was a wide choice on the menu and when the food arrived it was beautifully presented. We all thoroughly enjoyed our meal and thought the staff were friendly and helpful.

Absolutely no track and trace happening, which is very concerning to say the least! We thought they might of brought us a form to fill out during the meal but there was absolutely nothing. Drinks order taken fairly swiftly and then food order not long after, so the food arrived and it all went down hill from here so they asked if wanted another drink so i ordered one which never arrived. So my friend received a hair in her pizza, (they did offer a new one but she decided as she didn’t want to wait ages)my meat was raw in my beef lasagna which put me off straight away and did not want to eat any more. Whilst my friend was still eating her meal they came and placed the bill on the table which we found very rude as we wasn’t even offered any puddings, not that we would of had any at this point so we swiftly paid and left the establishment.

Booked to go to the ‘Fish’ Thursday 20th August on the ‘Eat out to help out’ deal. Booked online on messenger for a party of 4 for 6:00 only when we turned up no one had any clue of our booking. We showed them the booking confirmation in which it said ‘our booking was confirmed and on a high table’ but despite this no one could help or had any constructive suggestions. Very disappointing. We took our business elsewhere!

A mid afternoon meal with my wife. The food was excellent and there was plenty of. Service was very good from the waitresses, prompt and friendly. BUT...The 'Manageress' needs to step back and take a long look at herself. I appreciate that some people have reasons not to wear a mask but, coughing into hands, and not in some instances, should be followed up with hand washing. Handling menus, cutlery, delivering drinks and communicating. It was also noticeable how 'rude' and abrupt the attitude was to the young waitresses. In conclusion, the food was excellent, the young waitresses were helpful and friendly. Spoilt by abrupt and thoughtless management.....did I feel COVID Safe? NO.

Table for 5 booked but put on a square table that would honestly only 4 could sit at, luckily one person did not turn up. Ordered drinks, plonked on table, one drink had to be chased as forgotten about. Had to ask for order to be taken. Food arrived, all food not that hot, one person sent fries back as stone cold. No meal/food check done. Service was poor but although food not hot what we did get was tasty. Sorry but I won't be visiting again.

Came in the Fish for a breakfast. Specifically because it does black pudding with it. Only to be told it had been taken off the menu. Yet it was still listed on the menu as part of 'The Fishermans Breakfast'. When I asked what we'd be given in substitute, the waitress at first said that a substitute could not be given. Then she said beans. Haha. What? So your not going to give us something listed on the menu or even replace it even with a bit if bacon? Besides. WHY would you even take black pudding off the breakfast anyway. Complete joke. Just seen 2 more groups of people asking for black pudding. Won't be coming here again!

Friend booked a meal at the pub. I’m the only vegan in the group. There was two choices on the menu - a vegetable curry and a vegan burger. I opted for the vegan burger and swapped the fries for sweet potato fries. I was told that the bread bun wasn’t vegan as it had milk in! I reluctantly agreed to have the bun as I didn’t want a burger without a bread bun. When it arrived, I was disappointed to see that the burger wasn’t a vegan burger, it was a cheap veggie burger with vegetables and beans in it. They had put two burgers in the bun and they were greasy. I only ate one veggie burger and the bun wasn’t even nice. Best bit about the meal was the sweet potato fries! I won’t be going back there for food as a vegan (unless they become more conscious of what they’re offering vegans!)

We hadn't been here for a while and decided to try it out again. Opted for a Venison Burger with cranberry mayo and a salad. The mayo and salad never came and we had to ask for them to be brought to the table. It was very difficult to catch the eye of a server as they were busy so took some time to raise this and for it to arrive. I opted for a Xmas stir fried rice dish (rice, bacon, turkey, stuffing, cranberries etc) including Soy coated sprouts. The meal arrived and it was ALL covered in soy sauce and had quite a lot of chilli included which was not mentioned on the menu board. The overall flavour of the dish was burning soy sauce, no flavour of Xmas at all. The server seemed non plus when I discussed this with her and had to check the menu to see if I was correct. It seemed the chef was making it up as he went along that night. It will be some time before we revisit as these meals were quite expensive. Not an enjoyable evening.

Went out for a quick bite to eat on a Friday afternoon while we had a very rare child free day. We ended up staying most of the day and having a really good time, we skipped a stroll on the beach to stay here. The waiting on staff were having a right laugh with us. We both had steak cooked perfectly, the food was faultless. We will be back

Amazing pub! Visited on a busy Easter Sunday, group of 8 with a dog, and could not fault the service, quality of the food and drink or the value. Real nice place with a great atmosphere, friendly staff and a just generally gave off a good vibe! Highly recommend visit if you’re in the area.

If your looking for good food at a reasonable price that comes with great service then this is the place. The breakfast is excellent with a varied menu. Full English comes in three sizes and is served with thick slices of Granary toast. However, the Fishermans is not all about the great breakfast menu. They serve great quality meals throughout the day. There is a specials board that changes every two weeks and has some very good alternatives to the normal menu. we have had a few selections from the board over the past few weeks and have never been disappointed. Its difficult to pick out a particular dish as they are all good so go online and look at their menu. Fish and Chips Friday is well worth booking in for. Good size Haddock with thick chips and mushy peas for two currently at £16. Best Fish and Chips and price in the area and that is saying something as Cleethorpes and Grimsby are renown for god fish and chips. Finally the staff deserve a very well earned mention. Friendly, polite and efficient. Nothing is ever too much trouble, even when faced with a regular bunch of grumpy old boys who all agree the food and service is great, and they are not easily pleased, believe me. I know because I'm one of them.

Visited today and had two of their £8.95 Friday special haddock, chips and mushy peas. Haddock was advertised as 10oz but looked bigger than that. Really good portion size. Fish was fresh. Homemade chips and plenty of mushy peas as well. Ordered a side of bread and butter and a curry sauce and it was still under £20. Great value. Would definitely go again.

Called in on a busy Saturday on the off chance there was a walk-in table available on the recommendation of some fellow Thorpe Park-ers. It was really busy but the manager managed to get us a table if we were happy to wait 30 mins, which was absolutely fab. We both had the steak which was cooked as requested and the chips were divine. I liked the look if the burgers and sandwiches on the menu but the only gripe we had was that it was all on seeded bread which neither of us like. The cod goujons for example would be amazing on white sourdough loaf, but seeded multigrain bread just isn't for me. I will be returning though, can't wait to dig into more of those chips!
