About Us

We've never been described as normal. However- though once declared 'the most eccentric restaurant in Britain' (Telegraph, 14th Aug 2004) our aim has always been to deliver simply cooked seafood in a relaxed environment. Anything else is down to chance. It is true in the past that one of our customers was so relaxed that he had to be woken up during lunch. We have also assisted several people off the floor although we must stress this has never been food or alcohol related. For the most part guests leave in the condition they arrived in, no comment.   


With any of our food you can mostly expect to be provided with cutlery, drinks when ordered, a seat inside or out and a friendly and sunny tempered waitress to help you enjoy your seafood experience. *Please see Terms and & Condition below. We may consider serving tap water with your meal if requested (subject to T&C's below) but generally only if there is an honest intent to drink it rather than to imply that the waitress may enjoy a little extra exercise. We love having children here especially if they are sitting at their own table. Running, yelling and poking holes in things with the lobster pickers tends to have an adverse effect on other customers and could well invoke the wrath of Mother - especially if in her living room. Screaming, shouting, laughing and running about by staff is entirely normal and shouldn't cause alarm or offense. There's an extremely small chance we might let you deviate from the menu but do you really want to risk it?
*Terms & Conditions. Entirely dependent on the weather, time, day, and more importantly whether the waitress is Kath or Sal (you be the judge!)


Here's a couple of hints to keep things running smoothly 


  •  We are only able to take card payments at the shop/restaurant. There's a £10 minimum order for our drop off service.
  • If you care about our sanity and that of the person standing behind you, make your mind up before getting to the front of the queue ;) Incidently, this is excellent advice for life in general
  • Look again at the menu and try keep your wits about you. The evening menu is available at lunch time but the lunch menu is not available in the evening EXCEPT children and non fish eaters who may eat their lunch for dinner Tongue out


And finally, please like our Facebook page for updates and special offers. We'll get the kids to explain it to us later.
