been lots of times, but tonight will be the last. Absolutely underwhelmed with the fish it was dry and grey not like the usual fresh succulent tasty fish I've been used to. The waiting staff were as always very polite and when I was asked wether I'd enjoyed my meal and told them they were very apologetic. They went to... More

Hi John, your feedback is noted. Did you speak to the owner / manager because I certainly do not remember seeing you? I received one complaint from staff this week so I presume this was it regarding a fish being dry. However, it was impossible to ascertain whether the fish was dry or not as the plate was returned with... More

My visit here last week was a very pleasant experience. In fact I would say everything was faultless. The reason I wish to submit another review is to tell everyone about the "posh pie". I do not consider it to be posh pie. I think the term is used to differentiate between the less expensive lower quality pies that can... More

On December 9th 2016 we visited here and received amazing customer service from Paula. We came with our six week old daughter and she was very upset and very sick whilst we were there.

Very clean, newly decorated restaurant, friendly staff and efficient service. We went here having been recommended. The menu is brilliant and we chose the pensioners special, an excellent deal. The haddock and plaice were a good size, the batter and mushy peas were excellent. Our only disappointment was the chips. They were brown as though previously cooked and the potatoes... More

Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed the fish, the peas, the customer service and the value for money. We're sorry you did not enjoy your chips. As this was not raised at the time, I cannot really comment. All I can say is that we go through 5 or so different types and variety of potato... More

We used to go here all the time, but recently, past few months been dissapointed with quality of fish. Seems to be thinner compared to other fish shops and more batter on to make it look larger when it is served. Overall quality is ok, just value for money I think is better elsewhere.

Hi Geoffrey, if you have any concerns, please ask to speak to me in the shop. I am always approachable and more than happy to listen and resolve any matters raised. Not sure what I can say here other than we weigh each piece of fish to ensure they are "regular" or "large". The fish is no different and from... More

First visit to this restaurant and I was highly delighted, the fish is cooked fresh whilst you sit at your table in a very pleasant atmosphere and good hygiene all around. we just called in for a quick lunch before going to a Christmas Fayre, it was obvious that this is a popular restaurant and has many regular customers.
