What a great place to have lunch. Came on a visit from the big smoke and popped in for a late Birthday treat. Well worth it!! We had the crab platter and a bottle of Poully-Fuissé and I'm refusing to leave. Best place in Ludlow....More

We recently bought the so-called platter for 3 people from here to take home and we were still eating it three days later! We got at least 10 meals out of it. Super value and super tasty!

A tiny restaurant, currently with only 4 tables and a sit up bar (and the tables are tiny as well). However, the seafood is out of this world and very reasonably priced. 3 of us had a crab platter and a smoked fish platter (each...More

Friendly, knowledgeable people run this lovely shop where you can buy all things fishy to take home and cook - and their oysters are delicious - served in the shop with a glass of something chilled and sparkling!

We stopped here for an impromptu lunch and were delighted by the enormous, sparklingly fresh crab platter, with as much bread, butter, mayonnaise and clilli dip as one might wish for. For £25 for two, this was great value. The Fish House is also a...More

First bit of advice is to get here early as there are only 4 tables, we hadn't made a reservation and there was only 1 table not reserved. So felt lucky to have that one. We wanted 2 halves of lobster, a dish of brown...More

Hi Brian, many thanks for your review, we are glad you enjoyed the food. Our Whitby lobsters always go down well, and I always enjoy encouraging our diners to pick their lobster fresh from the counter! We're thrilled you had a positive experience with us...More

Hi Kevin, thanks for your review. If only you had let us know. We would have happily replaced or refunded your purchase. The A grade Scottish salmon is delivered fresh every morning, and we have used the same supplier for the last 8 years. Therefore...More

The Fish House is a high quality, traditional fishmongers - which serves an array of seafood and shellfish at lunch. We have a small yet perfectly formed seating area within the shop (and summertime seating outside). The Fish House is fully licensed with wines, ales and spirits on offer, as well as soft drinks. Lunch is served between 12:00pm and 3:00pm. We are open as standard, Wednesday to Saturday - with additional days on occasion.
