A gorgeous waterside setting, a broad seafood menu and frequent deals are all part of this restaurant’s appeal.

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

The setting is wonderfully scenic – this spacious, high-ceilinged former fishmarket has tall windows along its entire length, affording great views of sleepy Newhaven harbour and further out across the Forth. Oysters, mussels and salmon feature prominently but there’s almost every sort of sustainably sourced seafood you could imagine. A small bowl of delicious hot-smoked anchovies can be either a modest starter or simply a snack while selections are made. Pan-fried king prawns in a piquant chilli and garlic oil is a splendid way to get things properly underway. For mains, the seafood grill delivers an impressive array of well-cooked fish and shellfish including salmon, bream, scallops and squid, accompanied by sautéed heritage potatoes. Fisherman’s stew also showcases a respectable selection of seafood in a light tomato broth. The drinks list has commendable range, and children and gluten-avoiders are both well catered for, each receiving their own menu (though only the former get an activity pack). There are regular discounts and offers, so savvy diners should keep their eyes open for a bargain.

Eat - Oysters
