Very tender, with light as a feather bread crumbs. We had the cod, and it was crumbed. It was moist and tasty. Chips are... More

Crowds are way down so that can only mean so is turnover Fresh seafood outlets need high turnover Food today was ok but you can't help feeling it is dieing a slow death.
