Visited the Cod Father not knowing what to expect. Great service great food all the fish you could ever want sushi as well and of course good wine and great chips. Give them a go you’ll enjoy it.

An excellent idea where you select your fresh fish or variety of fish as well as the size of your portion and it is delivered freshly grilled to your table - absolutely delicious.
