Found this place by accident on a recent trip north. Very basic selection and all fresh. Cooked to order. Price can not be beaten. Staff are friendly and will offer well thought suggestions. Well worth the visit.

We decided to give this local fish and chippery a go rather than the nearby fine dining seafood restaurants. So happy about that choice. I love the fact that it's all locally caught and a family-run business. Their fish is lovely as are their seafood...More
