Maggies does perfectly cooked fish and chips with all the trimmings - mushy peas, homemade tartare, vinegar - in large serves. There's always cod and haddock and the catches of the day from boats pulled up on the shingle outside.

Definitely the best fish and chips I have ever had! Fresh and crisp, big portion and friendly environment. We arrived 5 minutes before 6pm and got 1 of the only 3 non-reserved tables. Lucky us!

Parking is available in nearby streets and it's a lovely and interesting area to walk in. The restaurant is on the first floor of a building so not suitable for disabled access.

Here at Maggie's we're in our third decade of serving you hearty portions of the freshest fish, cooked to order, in a warm and welcoming cafe - the same traditional family-friendly approach as when Margaret Banfield first put her name above the door. We're right on the Fisherman's Beach - so you'll enjoy some spectacular views while you tuck in to our fish, direct from the market below us and our specials are straight off the boats with the morning catch - keeping a carbon footprint of less than 20 miles. You can't get fresher than that! Maggie's is licensed too, so you can enjoy a glass of wine or a beer with your meal. We are open six days a week, but it's advisable to call us ahead to reserve your table, and if you've got a special occasion, we welcome parties of up to 40 guests.
