If you are in Red Bay - it is the place to eat. We arrived right as a bus group was leaving - and the service was still great. Excellent Fish and Chips.

Not a fancy place, the fish was delicious! I also took the vegetable and fish soup, a bit though for my taste, but lovely. I wish we had more time for dessert...
