Love the food from here and it's also nice to sit in occasionally with a beer! Chips are great, as is the fish and curry sauce and the deep fried salt and pepper squid is my absolute favourite!!

I visited Fish Bait after reading about it in the Sunday Times and was not disappointed. I had haddock and chips and the fish was wonderfully soft and perfectly cooked. The batter had a wonderful flavour and was crispy. Scraps were also done on request...More

My hankering for fish led me back to Fish Bait. My craving was not disappointed! I was served with a big portion of lovely hot chips and the fish was perfectly golden and crisp. The side order of mushy peas and tatare sauce complimented it...More
