I've reviewed this place before - consistently delicious fish in a venue that not only lacks frills but could even be called basic. Who cares, really, with food this good? The staff are cheerful and unpretentious, the decor is the same. Inhibiting noise levels could...More

Three generations of my family ate an evening meal here and we all had a fabulous meal. The fish was superb, but simply cooked to make the most of it's flavour. A good night was had by all.

Whilst still in the same family (so I'm told) its not as good as I remembered it in the past. I always rated this place as excellent but not on my last visit. Also found it a lot more expensive
