Thinking of this place just as a ‘fish bar’ doesn’t do it justice. The menu is ‘fishy’ but it does pie specials and a fab kids menu too. My son was delighted by his tugboat - really a tugboat with his meal and mini desserts...More

We had the seaside afternoon tea and some tug boat meals for the children. Both were excellent taste and value. We would definitely recommend this restaurant! Our server couldn't have been more helpful or friendly!

Very busy bank holiday Monday but we didn't have to wait long for a table even for seven of us. Staff were friendly and food was tasty and hot. Never been before but would go again. Can recommend mackerel salad with new potatoes.

Fish and chip afternoon tea for two. Absolutely delicious, at first glance you don't think there is very much food. However there is - 2 freshly battered fingers each, bowl of chips each, mushy peas, piece of bread then selection of cakes. This restaurant is...More

Had a lovely late breakfast here. The sausage was very tasty and meaty, which is unusual with an English breakfast. The coffee is superb. I certainly had plenty of food, and had to leave some because I was full. The outdoor area is sunny, but...More
