Had calamari steak, delicious, Fish and chips, amazing and chicken burger, awesome!! Something for everyone- including my fish hating son whose burger was great. Top up chips are free which is a good touch and tap water on the tables. Lovely staff too.

I love seafood and couldn’t wait to try the fish here-they did not disappoint! I had the grilled monkfish with a delicious side salad (lovely dressing) and shared my partners unlimited chips. We also ordered the oysters which were nice and juicy! Highly recommended!

We couldn’t fault this place. The seasonal seafood was delicious. The ambience was excellent. Loved the open kitchen. The place was packed and yet the waiting and kitchen staff were relaxed and smiling.
