Excellent food. We come here whenever we are in Newcastle. Eat in or take away and sit at the outdoor tables.

Great for a dinner out, great for a takeaway fish and chips or burger - you shouldn't visit Newcastle without coming here! It's an institution for good reason!

Stopped in here on a whim. Won't be returning. Had the Wagyu burger (raw meat in the middle of the burger) and the salmon (undercooked). The chips were quite good but the wait for our food was very long (didn't appear to be very busy)...More

Had an excellent Barramundi and the best Calamari rings in the last couple of years... Not cheap but absolutely worth it.
