Previously known as The Glassblowing House restaurant, we are now under a new ownership and specialise in fresh, local fish, seafood, and organic steaks. Our tables are just meters from the water’s edge nestled in the hustle and bustle of one of Plymouths most historic harbours.

Diners can look out over the Barbicans cobbles, colourful fishing boats and famous Mayflower Steps whilst enjoying their meal. Whether you are looking for a romantic evening for two or a family friendly meal for 10 our restaurant is the perfect location for everyone.

We also have a take away which means you can enjoy our delicious menu at home or in the sunshine.


How to Prepare Fish

All our fish is prepared fresh and sourced locally, just of the British Coast.

Trim the fins using scissors.

Scale the fish using a fish scaler or the back of a knife, working from the tail, towards the head.

Cut at an angle into the back of the head on both sides, and then one cut on the underside. Snap the head away, removing any innards that come with it.

Gut the fish by running the tip of the knife through from the vent to the head, then discard any more innards. Break the membrane holding the bloodline with the tip of a knife, then use a brush or kitchen paper to clean it out. Rinse under a gentle running cold tap.

We are always changing the menu to bring in new ideas and new flavours for our customers. What’s great is that the menu is always changing depending on that day’s catch. What more not to love?
