Good clean place for fish and chips, with a choice of battered or crumbed. The potato cakes are made on the premises but we found them a little disappointing as they were mashed and battered. Nice but would rather slices of potato battered.

I visited before I take a ferry. They are selling very fresh sea food. It seems like they catch some of them by themselves as they attached a photo of ship. I ordered Lunch pack and Scallop pack. I would go again.

Had a great feed of scallops and flat head on the small outdoor deck. Fish was well cooked, not over cooked. Scallops were juicy and sweet. Staff were very friendly. Would certainly recommend this little gem.
