For us this was a repeat visit to one of the best fish restaurants in Sussex. Great menu, only one item not available which caused no problem to us, my dover sole well grilled, however I would have preferred to have the sauce served seperately, and was sad that skinny fries not availanle.

Lunchtime meal, excellent tiger prawn starter, whole Dover sole & brown shrimps was good, presentation would have benefitted from some garnish in addition to lemon slice. Generous sized portions of side dishes meant we were too full for anymore, other than coffee.

We went for lunch with relatives and food was delicious as usual. The service was excellent as I changed the time of our table 3 times due to train delays and each time I was greeted with “no problem” perfect and made us very welcome.

I guess in some way we were unlucky but we had to endure sitting at a table full of 12 men from the local golf club having a night out and the noise level was intolerable especially after they had a few drinks. May I suggest to the establishment that they put those kind of function in a private room. I suggest you check that there are no functions booked at the time of booking as it surely did spoil our night. Having said all that I can recommend the food’

We found this restaurant on line - and came with two French vegetarian (but fish loving) friends. Every course was brilliant without exception - the service was excellent and (based on London prices) this was amazing value for money. Would we come again or recommend it - certainly - no doubts at all. Thank you.

Due to the hard surfaces finish in the restaurant noise is not abated and so considerable noisy neighbouring large group tables, made conservation very difficult. Soft furnishings would be very useful to curtail loud raucous noises.
Other than that a very pleasant experience as always.

Great menu choices, good service, lovely dessert! I had the gurnard as a main - a first for me but it was filleted and delicious. My wife had the steamed lemon sole which she liked very much. For dessert we had the ginger pannacotta - delightful! Happy to recommend.

Very nice venue. Fresh, local food, and very well prepared. I just feel that the place needs more “soul”. The service is really professional but not human enough. It’s needs a “personality”. Everything else is perfect.
