While the location isn't so handy for those staying near the sea front it is well worth searching out if you are fond of fish or steaks. There is a wide range of fish dishes including daily specials depending on the catch of the day....More

Sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your visit, the price for the fish and chips reflects that we only use fresh locally sourced haddock, we hand peel and chip all our potatoes, with homemade mushy peas. Nothing out of the freezer. Our Ala Carte menu...More
