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 & paper serviettes – but if that sort of thing appeals, you’re in for a treat. All manner of fishy delights are present & 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 & bargain-hunters should head next door to the takeaway, where fish & chips ‘to go’ is offered at a fraction of the cost.

Used to really like this place, but quality has gone down quite a lot recently. On most recent visit I ordered scampi, but when it arrived it turned out to be processed fish in breadcrumbs. The manager told me that this is what scampi was supposed to look like.
