We had a nice fish lunch - light enough, but also filling to keep us going for the afternoon. Ages ranged from 13-75, and we all had what we wanted - the sharing platters are particularly good!

I phoned the restaurant with my take away order. It was very noisy and I could hardly hear the lady that took my order. Fish completely overcooked and rubbery. Chips cold. The only positive was that my son liked the calamari starter.
