We all arrived outside the Restaurant within five minutes of each other which was good, as it meant that we all went in together, we ordered drinks first, which arrived after a short time, and we soon ordered our meals, which arrived promptly, the service that we received, when ordering both our drinks and meals was first class.

We all enjoyed our drinks and meals, but we did have some vanilla ice cream as one of our party decided to bake and bring a small cake with her, which she shared with all of us, which we all enjoyed, we all liked the atmosphere in the restaurant, so overall, the food, drinks and atmosphere, were all very good.

They do fantastic fish and chips, but also lots of other fish you would expect in a restaurant. They turned down the music when we asked to a level that was acceptable, other than that staff are helpful and friendly and its always a pleasant experience.

The food is good but the place needs a bit more ambiance. To be fair we were there on a Tuesday in August but its not really somewhere to head to for the atmosphere. Also one of our party was coeliac and was hoping for a bit more choice.

We had large Cod and large Haddock with a side of chilli squid. The portions were good and the chips were chunky and crunchy. We had wonderful time and it was a great experience. Going back again for sure.

Good no nonsense fish with delicious stews and risotto as well as more normal fish and chip fare, great place to sit on Mill road and watch the characters go by

We were visiting Cambridge and looking for a fish restaurant. This seemed to be somewhere more casual but with a great menu. It was the best meal we have had in a long time. The moules were delicious and the seafood linguine was amazing. Great food at a very generous price accompanied by friendly service. It is a shame we don't have somewhere like this more local to us as we would definitely go again. Highly recommended.

Tinned music much too loud at first. Couldn't hear to converse. Speakers unavoidable. Asked to move and another one was directly overhead. I think the volume was set so the staff could hear over the noise of kitchen and till. It was turned down on request to an acceptable level. Otherwise no reason for complaint. Will come again.

Sauce of Mussels was good but mussells were a bit cold and overall not strongly tasty.
Fries good.
Good portion
Service very friendly
But it was cold as the door kept being open end for the takeaways.
Will stick to takeaways next.
