“The queuing and lack of finesse in customer care (plus the uncomfortable shed setting) are all part of the joy” at this rough-and-ready veteran spot, turning out “amazing fresh fish”… er, and that’s about it, so you may want to take advantage of the BYO bread and bottle policy (though they do now have a licence too).

“Supplied by the boats landing just outside”, this descriptively named shack is “basic, but in an amusing, offbeat way to treasure”. You queue, and also need to “bring your own bread and wine” so it’s “therefore cheap”.
