    Generous portions and food well cooked and tasty. However the hollandaise sauce looked like melted butter. I believe the chef needs to reexamine the recipe.

    Fantastic fish restaurant and lovely staff. The only disappointment is the decline in desserts they used to be homemade now bought in and taste cheap- such a shame as can't fault the mains

    A fantastic experience with delicious perfectly cooked food. The smoked haddock with poached egg was mouth-wateringly good and the grilled skate was milky white and grilled to perfection. A lovely choice of starters and desserts made this a wonderful lunch. The restaurant was clean and tastefully decorated and the two waitresses were both pleasant, cheerful and worked extremely hard to ensure everyone enjoyed their dining experience.

    Haven't been to the Ark for such a long time, was so glad that on my return the food and staff were as great as I remember.
