Despite the times, Crail Fish bar continue to provide an essential service to local community and tourists. We had prawns, scampi and fish and it was completely delicious. The service was safe and reassuring with distancing and masks. Highly recommend.

We cook using Palm Oil. The chips are cooked in dedicated fryer's that are only used for the chips, separate from the fish fryer.
