F.A.Q.s

Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, we are situated in a private car park with free parking for guests for up to 3 hours.
Dogs are very welcome!
Children are very welcome - we have a couple of specific kids tapas dishes but we find that most children enjoy the tapas experience and sharing dishes from our main menu with their parents
We don't have a specific gluten free menu but many of our dishes are naturally gluten free and, if you speak to our staff, we can tailor a lot of dishes to your requirements as our food is cooked fresh to order.
We do indeed! Whilst we specialise in fish, we know that not everyone likes it and make sure that all other tastes are catered for.
We absolutely do! You'll find some great vegetarian dishes on our menu and these can all be adapted for vegans too.
We will hold your booking for you for 15 minutes after the time you are due to arrive. If you're going to be longer than this you can modify your booking by going back to the bookings portal or you can call us to re-schedule if possible
Just follow the link in your confirmation email
We do have both wheelchair access and an accessible toilet but please contact us directly by calling 01637 874152 or emailing [email protected] to make your reservation and we can make sure that we book you onto a suitable table
We have a limited number of highchairs available - if you need one please make sure that you let us know by selecting the option on the bookings page
We absolutely do and we have a dedicated area that can seat up to 38 people. It's perfect for celebrations, meetings or business functions with options to create a set menu or buffet if you like. Contact us directly on 01637 874152 or at [email protected] to discuss your requirements
Absolutely! Let us know the occasion and we can decorate your table and make arrangements for cakes, bubbly or whatever you might like!
Tapa (or Tapas for plural) means small plate in Spanish. The actual concept of Tapa varies greatly depending on where you are and can be anything from a little taster with a drink or a mix and match style meal to share with friends. At The Fish Bar you can treat our Tapas exactly how you want! Whether you fancy a little bite with a bottle of wine, a table full of mixed Tapas to share with friends, making a meal out of 2 or 3 dishes or ordering a dish or two at a time and see how it goes!
As a guideline we find about 2-3 dishes per person works well. But this obviously depends on your own appetite, how much you've eaten through the rest of the day and which dishes you order - some are much more filling than others! Why not do rolling tapas and just order a couple of dishes at a time until you're full!

Very good choice of tapas, which all arrived to our table together and fresh and hot from the kitchen. We had 6 tapas selections for 2 of us- too full for dessert! Excellent staff, friendly and efficient… can’t wait to go back again to try the remainder of the menu .

It was our 1st visit to The Fish Bar which we thoroughly enjoyed. The staff are definitely an asset to this restaurant. They are attentive enthusiastic helpful & friendly but not overly so. As we were celebrating a birthday they had put a banner up at our table which I thought was a lovely thought. The ambiance is pleasant and the food fabulous with a good selection to choose from.

Full 5 stars from us, from the second we arrived the service was fantastic, the happy, friendly waitresses did a perfect job. The food was exceptional, it was super fresh and extremely tasty also excellent value for money. We opted for the tapas and each dish was a flavour delight, our children had the chicken, chips and garlic bread which was also excellent. We will definitely be recommending this gem of a place and will be sure to revisit when next in the area!

The staff were so lovely, even getting us seated earlier than we had booked for since we arrived early for a drink. The food was phenomenal. Using a button to order, get your table cleared, and ask for the bill is really efficient too. Couldn’t recommend it enough!
