We went for tea to have fish and chips and wasn’t disappointed. The chips homemade and the fish in a really nice batter and mushy peas. The pub is a quaint British pub. When there it was very busy and would highly recommend 👍🏻

I would ask Malcom and Grace, if you're sat in the bar area by the doors they might let a well behaved small dog in?

Directly opposite the Fish Market is a pub known as 'The Drunken Duck'. As you look at the Drunken Duck from the Fish Market there is a street to the left of the Duck, the Joker is about 20 yds down that street.
