Today’s Local Fish

We buy fresh fish every morning from the markets in Plymouth & Brixham, here you can find out about each specie we serve. The fish that were at their best on the market each morning will be marked on your table cloth when you visit. Your selection can be grilled or fried in our crisp batter to your preference. Served with either house salad or unlimited fresh cut chips.
