Fish & Chip shops and restaurants
« on: October 29, 2013, 09:13:51 PM »
Mind you, you'd need R & R by the time you had walked from "The Woburn Arms" or "The Windmill Grill" in Millisle.

 :(

I think "The Windmill Grill" is closed now but there is an excellent fish and chip shop called McClements.

Is that on the D'dee side of the Village?  I think I've had food from there some years ago.  Both were/are excellent.  Really good.

It's about fifty yards from The Windmill Grill.  Fish and chips is my favourite meal - I'm always looking for the perfect fish supper and would give McClements a nine out of ten.

OK.  That's a good recommendation. 

I've found the Captain's Table to be "not as good" in the past couple of years. I had a row there earlier this year when I asked the lady if she had "recooked" the chips!!   :( :o

I live in D'Dee.  I also stopped using the Captains Table after a very disappointing fish supper.  I had one yesterday from Raineys, the new one opposite a Grace Neill's. It was OK but not as good as McClements.

Should you find yourself in the vicinity of the lower Newtownards Road try the 'Bethany'. Can still recommend 'Longs' just off Durham Street in Belfast. Never been disappointed by either.

No it was in millisle

I was never in it, then.  I was in a pub in Main Street Ballywalter many many years ago.

If I recall correctly, the Kingfisher was on the opposite side of the street from the pubs in Millisle. Latterly I think it was an Indian restaurant for a while but that could have been ten years or more ago when I lived at Ballyhalbert.  ???

I used to call at The Bethany occasionally on a lunch time when I was working, good fish and chips and  a nice man in attendance. He once gave me free portion of brown fish in bread crumbs which he had just introduced (long time ago) - lovely but it made me thirsty.  I was forced to go for several pints on the way home that night.

I know you do.  I stay near the harbour now and again.  Within walking distance to the rear entrance of Pier 36.

I don't know Rainey's.  Is David's not good?
