Much improved from our last visit in Sep 17. Food quality on take-out menu still very high, although pricey. Staff were neatly dressed, polite and helpful. The little restaurant was well presented and very clean. Overall much improved and hoping to visit again this summer.

Ordered the Fish pie and while it generally decent and tasted good I found there were too many mussles in the dish. Other than that the service was polite and friendly and my companion had fish and chips which were really good.

We're a Bistro Style Restaurant serving home cooked breakfast, lunch and dinner. Many of our dishes are also available for Take-Away. Take your first left into the the picturesque seaside village of Ardmore (right beside the chemist). Our dishes are home-made and cooked to order. Dining is available inside (comfy booths), or outside at our large picnic tables under cozy umbrellas. Signature dishes include Billy's Sea-Food Pie and Prawn-Fish Scampi. Our chips are hand-cut and never frozen! Hope to see you soon at Shipmates!
