I am sure many people still don’t know this new fish and chip restaurant has popped up. New to Rendezvous Street but new it isn’t. Having relocated from Hythe, this family business has now set up shop next door to the Salvation Army just off Noels Yard.
As you walk in the restaurant you directly pass the takeaway, but sitting out the back, it feels less like there is a take-away in house and more like a cafe/restaurant which also has the added bonus of an outdoor patio.
With artwork throughout the restaurant, the place is clean and friendly but very quiet when we arrive which is a shame, it is the kind of interior that suits having lot's of diners to give it a buzz.
I opt for scampi and chips with mushy peas. You can tell a lot about a place by their scampi.
As we waiting we were served some homemade crisps, not one to turn down a free gift, they did not last long on our table.
I’m pleased to tell you the scampi was delicious, although served with crinkle cut chips, which did make me feel slightly like a child again and did lack the feeling of a good chip shop chip.
My lunch guest ordered a Korker sausage, something she tells me you rarely find on a menu but once you have had one you never look back. All that for a sausage? Can’t be bad.
Our plates were empty and it was a welcome, if slightly heavy lunch-time stop over and despite my feelings about crinkle cut chips, the scampi was delicious, and that will always get my vote.
