So the wonderful guys at the fishery restaurant invited myself and my family to come and try their restaurant during their ‘kids eat free’ promotion time, offered on a Thursday night from 5-6pm.
This meal was very kindly gifted but I wasn’t expected to do anything in return but I can’t not talk about it – it was AMAZING!!
Now for a start off the restaurant in itself is stunning. It’s the perfect cross between classy and comfy and the manxest restaurant I’ve ever been in!
The manager Ciara and the lady waiting on (I didn’t get her name, sorry!) were the best hosts and offered a warm welcome and nothing was too much trouble.
The kids menu is one of the best I’ve seen with lots of options including either cooked or raw veggies on the side which is a brilliant idea! There’s also a veggie option which is great.
The girls were given a mini colouring book to use and keep on arrival and the use of some crayons to keep them entertained.
Miss 7 chose the chicken lollipops with skinny fries and raw veggies. I quote ‘that was the best meal I’ve ever had mummy! And the chips tasted like Macdonalds chips!’
Now when my kids put something higher than a happy meal then you KNOW it’s good haha!
Miss 5 chose the cheese burger (minus the cheese!), skinny chips and cooked veggies.
They also got a choice of drinks and it was served in a kilner mug which they loved! Nice big serving for the drinks too which I love!
The ladies served the girls meals with our starters as requested with no worries at all which makes the meal so much more relaxing when they’re not waiting to eat!!
Now on to us adults……. SO MUCH CHOICE!
I was very happily surprised to see a choice of meals for me that suit my plant based diet and they were super tasty too! The portions are massive!
For starters I had the sweet potato and coconut soup – Devine 😍
Mum had the kipper pate and my dad had the popcorn queenies. Queenies are his most favourite food in the world and he said these ones were amazing!
For mains I had the vegan cottage pie. With your main you get a choice of chips (skinny, Chunky or sweet potato AND a choice of side) I went with Chunky chips and the root veg. Mum went for the fishery burger with sweet potato wedges and root veg and dad had oven roasted cod with sweet potato wedges and cauliflower and broccoli cheese ………. AH – MAZE – ZING 😍
Literally the ONLY thing I could complain about is that I really really wanted to try the vegan sticky toffee pear pudding but I had so much in the first 2 courses I literally couldn’t fit in another bite!
The girls got an icecream with sauce and sprinkles for their pudding included in their kids meal offer
Miss 5 finished every last drop and LOVED the fact it was served in a mug!
Miss 7 decided to decline her kids meal icecream and shared a brownie and icecream with my mum
The food was all absolutely top class! We all really enjoyed it.
I have also never had an apple orphanage juice served so posh!
One of the most important things to me when I eat out is cleanliness. The whole place was absolutely spotless. The toilets were not only spotless they are really funky too! The sink is shaped like a massive shell and the wall paper is old pictures of the Isle of Man!
All in all this place is an absolute hidden gem. The food, the service and the atmosphere are all just brilliant!
And how cool is it that you can bring your kids on a Thursday between 5pm and 6pm and they eat FOR FREE!
Thank you so much guys! We had the best time and we most certainly will be back very soon!
If you’ve not tried it guys I suggest you book for next Thursday ASAP! Or before if you can’t wait that long!
