One of the best fish suppers I have ever had!Portions were good, quality of fish superb and very reasonably priced as well. Can take a while to get served but not as long as many places and it's worth the wait!

Had fish and chips from here today and I must say they were up there with the best. What a refreshing change to have really crispy batter and chips. Not at all soggy. Everything was cooked to perfection and the guy who served me was very polite and courteous. This place is tucked away from the main road and I will be visiting again.

We waited in a long line for the freshest cod fish and chips, oh boy, the food is worth the wait, the very best fish and chips, perfectly battered, cod is super fresh and huge(did I say huge), the curry sauce is so tasty, I also tried sausage, it was soooo good. My advice is to pick up your order, in summer months maybe by 5:30pm there will not be a line, then sit next to the harbor, then just enjoy, you will not regret!
