Atlantic fish bar sits a couple of streets back from the sea front, pretty much down a side street but only just off the main shopping streets. It is very easy to get too and is great for getting fish and chips and walking the short walk back down to the beach to eat them.
As we walked in we were greeted by a lovely lady who was very chatty and happily answered any questions we had. We asked for a gluten free menu to be told "at the moment we don't have a menu as such..." and she reeled off what I could have, fish, sausage, chips, they could do the fish cakes gluten free if I wanted too and they were all cooked in their own dedicated fryers.
As we were chatting about what they did she proclaimed that from this week (Final week of May 2017) there was a full gluten free menu coming into play, I was literally just a few days short of it being introduced. She said they have so many Coeliacs visiting them that they decided to expand the range. She went on the hunt to find the copy of the new menu to show me, finally digging it out she showed me the menu that would soon be on offer. A variety of fish options, sausages, fish cakes, gravy, mushy peas. A very nice variety considering many chip shops can only offer fish and chips.
Everything is freshly cooked so we waited for our food to come out, it didn't take too long and everything was piping hot too and it was a really generous serving too. The batter on the fish was really nice and the meal itself was fabulous, really good fish and chips.
We were full when we finished but the sign behind my fiance was shouting out to me, "gluten free chocolate cake and New York cheesecake". I am a sucker for sweet food, so despite being stuffed I decided I had room for some cheesecake.
Ordering with the same lady again it didn't take her long to serve our desserts, the cheesecake was quite nice, the base was a little soggy but otherwise it was a perfectly acceptable dessert and it was nice to actually have a choice of dessert in a chip shop. A rare occurrence.
Bellies hanging over our trousers we went to the till and paid and stunningly it was less than £20 for 2 main meals, 2 drinks and 2 desserts, very reasonable indeed, we have paid over £20 in a chip shop restaurant for just the meals before. As we said to the lovely lady who I believe (But I could be wrong) was the owner as we left, we will be back, the food was amazing, there was a lot of choice, they were very knowledgeable, what more could we ask for? They truly are a perfect example of an eatery that know how to cater to Coeliacs.
