SquareMeal Review of
North Sea Fish Restaurant
Always a favourite with tourists – especially Americans – who come for the ‘gen-u-wine’ fish & chips they’ve heard so much about, souped up with a big dollop of nostalgia. Surroundings are from
a bygone age – think wood panelling, patterned carpets and paper serviettes – but if that sort of thing appeals, you’re in for a treat. All manner of fishy delights are present and correct,
with dishes as unashamedly retro as the interiors. Dip your toe in the water with prawn cocktail or breaded scampi, before tackling battered skate, plaice, cod or a good-value Dover sole (no
eco-fashionable pollock or gurnard here). Despite the very fair prices, backpackers and bargain-hunters should head next door to the takeaway, where fish & chips ‘to go’ is offered at a
fraction of the cost.
