Very slick service including automatically upgrading the booking to 5 people following the comments left in booking section (I kept forgetting to confirm). Perhaps having 5 as an option on the booking system would be easier? The food was perfectly cooked, portion size was great and the desserts were a huge hit with the kids.

As a regular visit to Fishers I’m always delighted with the food and excellent service. Even though Fishers’ menu is mainly fish dishes, there’s always at least two vegi options that I can choose from. I honestly cannot fault the place. Highly recommended you won’t be disappointed.

As always the food and service was excellent and although we currently cannot have alcohol indoors it didn’t detract from the experience. Staff were friendly and attentive adding to the great atmosphere of the restaurant. Great to be back.

The staff were excellent, everything felt safe and surprisingly normal. Lovely food as always, and excellent non-alcoholic wine to make it feel nice special

It is pretty difficult to generate an atmosphere with the current restrictions so i felt the need to knock a star off for that. The staff were great and the food as good as it has always been in Fishers. Great to see you back.

Turned up yesterday for lunch with friends after having had a confirmation email the day before. They were closed..... I would normally write a great review about here so this one is based on not being able to get in which wasn’t in the options. This is a great restaurant and we eat here regularly. May be worth updating your reservation system as I’m sure we were not the first or last. Luckily Dusit across the road took us in and it was fabulous!
