Enjoyed a pleasant evening in the shack. The food was very very good and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Great job! I had Hake which was very well presented. The oysters were delicious.

My husband and I first visited The Shack during the Winter. We decided to return again as we had enjoyed our meal so much on that occasion. Once again, we were not disappointed. Would definitely recommend the beautifully cooked (and presented) fish and chips.

Quite convenient - located in Events Square so no problem parking. Walked in and the friendly staff found us a table which at about 8;30 was good as they were busy. Menu is good - as is food quality. Kitchen is maybe trying a little too hard to jazz things up a bit. I had the bream fillets (fish of... More

Have had good meals here before but this time it was let down by a crab sandwich so short of crab it didn't even cover the bread. Nice brown crab mayonnaise but needed way more white crab
