We had really good blue cod fish and chips at Coopers Catch. If its a nice day, there is outside picnic seating to utilize. Very convenient on left side heading into town. A great little local spot that uses locally caught fish.

Had a very nice feed of fish & chips here. Fish was very fresh & beautifully cooked, hand cut chips very good. Staff were friendly & very efficient given the number of people.
