The best fish and chips I have ever had! Could not believe the size of the fish, 2 big pieces of fish on my plate. Cooked fresh to order and served by a very friendly, helpful waitress.

Maggie has retired, but her granddaughter is turning out fantastic fish and chips. Lightly battered Haddock with her home made tarter sauce is delicious. A reservation is probably necessary since there are about a dozen tables. Fantastic view of the English Channel while you savoy...More

After reading the great reviews we were anticipating a great meal tonight and it was (unfortunately) not amazing. The atmosphere was lovely ... but understanding that it’s a limited menu as it’s all fresh we were looking forward to an amazing set of cod and...More

My wife and I went for lunch on the spur of the moment. We arrived just as the full sign was being posted outside. We asked for a table and got a reservation half an hour later, which was fine. Returning the table was available...More

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.
