Best fish we have had in a long time. Capped off nicely by two dolphins swimming just offshore as we sat on the beach eating our fish and chips. Slightly more expensive than an average fish and chip shop but good value for the quality...More

Not many chippers serve battered scampi, it was absolutely delicious. Instead of chips, I went for the battered mushrooms and fried pineapple. Amazing!!!
