Looking for breakfast and Starfish had a great choice ended up with a starfish bap and a cuppa all for just £3.50! Bap was stacked high with link sausage, bacon, egg, tattie scone and for those of us black pudding. Scrumptious!

Went to the Starfish with some friends, not keen but they were drunk and I was dragged in. Served by the owner himself and I must admit - it was brilliant and the difference was like chalk and cheese to my first time. The chips were hot and perfectly cooked and the fish and batter were even better. Service was... More

I've just had a wonderful fish and chips tea in the Starfish restaurant in Stranraer. The fish was massive and was cooked to perfection, and that came with lovely crispy chips, peas, bread and butter and a great cup of tea. And included services with a smile and all for £8.50

We ordered the pensioner fish supper and 1 normal fish supper or so we thought. They duly came but the peas were the tinned tasteless type and the chips looked like they were yesterdays warmed up. Only half were edible. Also they could not do fish without batter and the fish supplied "lightly battered" was just normal to our eyes.... More

Called into the Star on a shopping trip to Stranraer whilst on holiday locally. The immediate attraction was the "chippy smell" as we walked past and double backed to the sit-in part of the business. We both had a fish tea, which I remember from my childhood and it tasted just as good now as it did then. Lovely crisp... More
