We called in there for dinner at the weekend, order taken quick. Drinks arrived quickly, the starter after about 10mins which was very nice, plate taken when we had finished. Then my main complaint after 30 mins no main course had arrived, people all around us that arrived after us getting served, in the end my wife had to go and ask were our meal was. Funnily once she asked it arrived straight away. Good job as I was just about to get up and leave and just pay for what I had eaten, before you say it was busy, it was not full and the staff seemed to be stood around waiting for the orders to be cooked. Will not go again, there is better food and service just down the road.

Had another really good meal at 55 with the wife and 3 kids.
The only thing wrong was the man changing light bulbs while there are people eating .

Not much to look at from the outside and could definitely do with a good clean inside! But the food was far from expected, we were amazed by the Scaraboro' Smokie and the Roast Haddock! Both excellent, the chef here obviously destined for much greater things! Even the chicken nuggets of the children's menu were made fresh and if chicken breast. The service is both friendly and efficient. The value for money is astounding; really should give it a try if you're in the area.

I must confess that had we been in London, we wouldn't have given this a second glance, but we would have missed out!

This is owned by the same people as Cafe Fish, but the whole setup is much simpler. The few things they have on a menu are pretty good. I was not impressed by the waitresses who forgot to mention specials, and had no idea which wines they had. Anyway, not bad for fish and chips for lunch.
