We got a fish supper from the take away section and it was superb. The fish was just beautifully cooked with a crispy batter and no soggy bits. The chips were perfectly cooked as well. The ladies behind the counter were lovely and friendly too.

Description
Fish & Chip restaurant looking out over the harbour while you eat. Traditional fish and chip dishes are served such as fish, sausages, chicken, haggis and deep fried pizza. However, we also serve our exclusive 'BLAGGIS' which is both haggis and black pudding battered together and another popular dish is our sweet chilli haggis. In our restaurant we also serve a small selection of salads, macaroni, chicken curry, lasagne and also hot and cold drinks. We also have the option to take away which is around the corner.
