This “lovely little café/restaurant serves the freshest of fish, cooked in front of you at great prices”. Close to the harbour in the old fishing port, it occupies a 200-year-old wooden shed once used to ‘tan’ or waterproof the fishermen’s nets.

“Delicious fresh fish straight off the boat” and “expertly cooked” (not least “great crab and top whitebait”) ensure that reporters “can’t wait to go back” to this diminutive joint, set right opposite the fishermen’s huts.

For 33 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
