We had a great meal at the Starfish. They were really accommodating for the dietary requirements of our party by offering a vegan option. They made a child's version of a meal as well. They also provides colouring pencils and paper. I'd highly recommend it.

Excellent food and service, we had a super evening. Only improvement would have been for the restaurant to be a couple of degrees warmer, we weren’t cold but it didn’t feel cozy. Good luck with the venture

First time back after several years and we where really impressed.my wife was a little bit disappointed that there was a fish and chips main choice on the outside menu but it wasn’t available on the menu inside.What we did order was really very nice and the portions were substantial.Good value for money and lovely service.

Ambiance mark would have been higher had the restaurant been full but understand the day of the week and the weather had an impact.

This is a nice little restaurant that specialises in fish. The sample menu was bigger than the menu on the day we ate there. We had scallops as a main and plaice. The scallops were very well prepared. The plaice was a little dry and the accompaniments were lukewarm. This was a shame as it appeared to have sat waiting in the kitchen. Wine prices were expensive and I suppose that is the price you pay for being out in the sticks. We enjoyed the South African Chenin blanc. We enjoyed the meal but felt that at £60 per person there were faults in the delivery. Nevertheless we think this is a business we would give a second chance if we are in the area again.
Business Response:
Thank you very much for your feedback. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed both your scallops and Chenin Blanc. In regards to plaice, the accompaniment that you mention is a salad and listed as such on the menu so, naturally it will not be piping hot. Our dishes are freshly prepared and never sit on the kitchen pass for longer than a couple of minutes. We routinely carry checkbacks to ensure that once the food is served, customers are happy with it. From our records, I can see that your table has been checked, so it's a shame you haven't flagged up with the waiting staff that you were not enjoying it, as we would have happily prepared something else for you. Thank you for your feedback, and we hope you enjoy the rest of your holiday. Kind regards, Starfish Team
