Found this place friendly and good value. Beautiful piece of haddock. This establishment was the first place where they did the fried Mars bar. Which they still do. Worth a visit very clean and set on the main road near the harbour

We had chips and cheese, and a deepfried marsbar. It was really good, but I was a bit disappointed with chips. However, the staff was really nice and we enjoyed the food. The marsbar was great and we loved a taste of Scotland!

We stumbled here before the fireballs on new years eve/hogmanay and so glad we did. A large selection menu of cooked to order delicious food. We had haddock and chips and one person tried the haggis pudding - all were lovely and very reasonably priced.

The staff was very friendly with three crazy Americans barraging them with questions about the area. The fish and chips were awesome! Fresh fish and perfect chips in generous portions.
