We had a family dinner at this restaurant after our son's graduation. The food was delicious and Steve the manager and his team were friendly and welcoming. Would definitely choose this restaurant again.

I visited this restaurant with my parents and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. My wife runs Sarah-Jaynes cafe in Chippenham and in her expert opinion, this is not one to be missed off your dining experience list!

Nothing special, many better restaurants around the area. The staff were not very attentive, the glasses were dirty and the food was all cooked in batter. Just an overpriced fish and chip restaurant in my opinion. Will not be returning!!

Apparently you can have the hake (and any other fish) without skin if you ask the waiting staff... The chefs are more than happy to accommodate.

We also have prime fillet and ribeye steaks to go with your seafood. Lobster and crab is on the menu everyday if you fancy a treat. We also offer lunchtime specials than run everyday of the year where you can enjoy line caught cod, chips (bottomless) homemade mushy peas, and homemade tartar sauce all for £9.
