“A local treasure”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2014

Brilliant fish and chips - told about this little gem by a local and took the advice. Great seafood, pleasant surroundings. Eating out in the sunshine after experiencing a very cold winter meant everything tasted just that much better. Seafood as good as is presented by nearby 'swish' hotel restaurants at a fraction of the price. Recommend a visit.

“the best fish and chips !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014

A wonderful experience ~ an array of fabulous seafood to devour.
I love their hot fish and chips.
Though my absolute favourite is battered sea scallops.
You can sit down outside and watch the sunset over the Broadwater.

“dont go out of your way”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2014

I found the fish dry and overcooked,chips were very ordinary and the price very expensive. I've had better feeds in small country fish and chip shops .definitely will not be a return customer.

“A lot of hype”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014

Great options for a local fish shop including upper scale items like lobster and scallop. Also good to just buy your fresh seafood and cook at home. Very crowded, to the point that they limit entrance into the store. Eating areas could be cleaner and bathrooms arent great.
