We went to this restaurant for the first time and thoroughly enjoyed the food, which was served promptly despite the place being full. Some of our party struggled to eat all that was on the plate, so be careful what you order unless you are really hungry. We're planning to go back very soon for a birthday dinner. Definitely a...

Daily deliveries of fish from billingsgate? Definitely tasted that way. Good fresh quality fish, ultimately a high end sit down chippy, was expecting nothing less. Good food, good value, will frequent more in the future.

Met a friend for lunch here mid-week. Menu offers a wide variety of fish dishes, as well as steak and pasta, and there is also a "specials board". Restaurant is modern, very clean and airy, although can be a bit noisy if busy due to some low ceilings. We chose 2 courses from the Set Menu for £16.95 Portions were... More

We have been to the Ark on several occasions to celebrate something or other. It is my wife's favourite for the locality of the Restaurant. The menu ranges from "Fish & Chips" to Seafood platters. As previous reviewers have pointed out you do get large platefuls. Watch out for the specials too as there is often something a little different... More

Have been here three times now and have had a consistently good experience every time. We are always blown away by the great fish selection and really good value compared to West end prices. Had Cornish Sole last time which was HUGE and very well cooked... Generous sides of any type of potato mean you will never leave hungry. Staff... More

Moving out of the area and friends introduced us to this restaurant that specialises in fish. Lovely food and good size portions. Recommend the whitebait and the haddock
