We had whiting and chips. Great fish, the batter was light and not too thick, and the CRUNCH on the chips! Wonderful.

Simple very fresh fish & chips, plus. The plus is a rear area to sit and look at the view, plus a selection of wines and beers, plus really friendly staff. Jules is wonderful.

When you travel, you want to discover places that are authentic, real and full of character and characters. The Gulch is such a place. Not trying to be anything it isn’t, The Gulch does food well and has that rare commodity, hospitality, in spades. We...tried the competition the night before and left feeling cold. After we left here, we felt like we had spent the evening with mates. I’d give it ten stars if I could. Keep up the great work.More

We left the opposition up the road when they said 40 minutes for the food so we left there and but we were more than happy to enjoy our lunch at The Gulch. Ordered calamari box, 6 scallops and whiting and chips. All beautifully cooked...in a trice. We went around the back to their shed with tables and chairs and a lovely fire....wonderful view to enjoy our feast. Recommended highly for yummy seafood and great service.More

To Ken, Dave and staff - outstanding food and great rustic atmosphere. You will not find a better cooked lobster anywhere. Just a tip pre order lobster before going to avoid disappointment. Better than any high priced restaurant

Perfection. They know how to cook it. Fresh as. Lovely staff. Amazing location on the water. Oysters, cray fish, calamari tentacles. Relaxing, easy place to eat and drink at. So glad we found this place. Fishing off the pier behind is well worth it as...well.More

If I remember correctly, they're open through the day for coffee & snacks. Dinner is served from about 4-4:30pm onwards. Fabulous fresh fish & chips. I would suggest going there latest by 6-6:30pm.
