    Cannot fault the food at all. Was delicious and beautifully served. One thing I will say is I thought the venue might have more of a restaurant vibe about it. It was actually very casual inside, with booths, high top tables and window seats. Excellent for a casual dinner, but for a special occasion, if you want a more traditional restaurant vibe I’d choose somewhere else.

    Food was excellent, but service was a little slow, but the staff did offer compensation for the delay in supplying the food, by taking away two items. Excellent value for money, food was excellent and well cooked, but slow service in providing the main course.

    Great food, great service, but table was a bit small for 4 people to sit comfortably. And unfortunately very strong smells coming from the kitchen. Maybe the extractors where not functioning efficiently.

    We eat in the restaurant for the first time on Saturday evening. The food was outstanding, we shared crab as a starter, just beautiful. Then we both had skate wing, a real delight, just amazing. The English sparking rose wine a very nice accompaniment for the meal. The staff and atmosphere was all very positive with great advice. We thought this was a very special restaurant and very much enjoyed. Regards Ian

    Fabulous fishmonger/restaurant crossover. Select your fish from the counter and have it cooked on/off the bone. Short menu so everything is fresh. The lime and chilli tiger prawns were amazing as was the Gilthead Bream. Portions are huge so didn’t get to try the deserts.

    My 2nd visit & will be back. Food is wonderful and service delightful. Really like the atmosphere having been in evening & at lunchtime. Bought fresh fish to take away on both occasions & it was beautiful. One of my favourite restaurants & up there with any pricey London gaff! Thank you for such a great dining experience.

    Always excellent! The food never fails to delight. We visit at least three times a year, ever since they first opened, and they consistently maintain a high quality of food. The front-of-house team is also excellent, making you feel welcome and well taken care of. My mom, a retired chef who has dined in many exceptional places, was impressed by the deliciousness of the food at Fish Union.

    We absolutely love this place. The overall ethos of Fresh daily fish and sustainability makes us feel even better when we eat hear. The setting isn't fancy but it is comfortable and easy to be a part of. We find ourselves booking our next visit before we have finished the last, not least because we find something new on the menu each time we visit. Well worth the happy hour of a £1.00 a prawn for chilli prawns. You have to have the confit potatoes they are an experience not to be missed.

    We took advantage of the happy hour Prawns (5-6 Tuesday to Saturday), an absolute feast. Then we started in on the small plates, the menu was different to last time as of course its what they can get that day!. Ooh dressed crab and baked crab marvellous, Gurnard amazing, Tuna the best!, shell on prawns and of course their amazing confit potatoes. Washed down with a really nice sparkling Kentish Rose. What can I say we booked our next visit before we left.

    This is a fish retailer/monger during the day and is a restaurant in the evening, we were not keen on the ambience, the lighting was stark, the bench seating was not an appropriate height for the table which has a chair on the other side. The food was excellent, just a shame it felt like McDonalds.
