I ordered Cullen Skink and a hamburger. The soup arrived cold. I sent it back...it was now hot, but watery with little to no fish...it was just a runny cream soup.

Always get a good meal here. Cannot fault it at all. :) I always opt for fish supper, whereas hubby has chicken fillets. In here at least once a month.

Absolutely divine fish and chips, eat in or take away. Light batter, the freshest of fish and good chips.

I eat here at least once a month, the fish comes from the market next door. Although it is still a good meal the quality has significantly decreased over the past 6 months.

We were going anyway but heard from a friend that they were offering half price second meal. Not so as it was Dolphin in Macduff!! As usual thoroughly enjoyed our fish and chips with beans, bread and plenty of tea. Fast service and helpful staff.

Love this place. Always go when I'm in town for a fish tea. Freshest fish its possible to get, chips, peas and bread & butter. Table service, and take away available. It's popular with the locals, and that's a good sign !
