Theres nothing more fresh than a seafood shop right in the restaurant. Food is not only fresh, it is cooked perfectly and flavorful. If you are a student or on a budget then this should be a treat for you. The portions are more than enough and are reasonable priced. It is the best place for seafood in the city. Nothing fancy. Just good food.

Low-key eatery serving seafood such as breaded haddock & fish & chips amongst funky, nautical decor. A friendly place with cheery ‘down east’ welcome and the nautical décor adds to the relaxed atmosphere. This place serves authentic maritime menu with fish and chips to die for.
