Hot smoked salmon, chips (or potato salad) and salad for £10.50 - good portion and absolutely delicious. We sat outside in the sun looking out over the sea wall - perfect. Lovely staff and wonderful food. Can't wait to go back.

Hi. You would need to check with the owner. I'm only a customer! I went there a few times though & don't recall them doing fish & chips. Thanks.
