It's an outdoor takeaway place so if you go in winter be prepared, because that's how they do it and it has an absolutely breathtaking view. Food is incredible! We had scallops, GIANT oysters and mussels...with super hot chips of course. Everything was fresh and...More

The best seafood and chips ever, not cod but lobster, scallops and oysters plus a great little gift shop and Deli. We loved it so much that we hope to eat there after our wedding next May.

Delicious selection of seafood & a highlight of the day for my companions who are oyster-obsessed. I am not a huge lover of shellfish, but I was delighted with my seafood platter & the mussels within. The hot smoked salmon was a treat, & we...More
