This place is a little expensive, so we opted for just fish and chips at 16 euro. They were really delicious. Crispy, light fish, twice baked chips? Were so good and crunchy- dipped in their sauce.

Searching for a restaurant early last Saturday and came by the Chophouse. Given a lovely table in a busy restaurant by helpful and courteous staff. Food was superb, especially the fish but realise that this place is known for its meat. Will definitely come back
