Called in for a fish on the way out of st Ives - what a delight! Server very friendly and chatted whilst they prepared my fresh fish. I have never tasted batter so light - would definitely recommend!
After a very good experience last year, we looked forward to a couple of visits here. However on this occasion, I found the experience very different (possibly due to changing hands).
