Run by Isle couple Ian and Jeannette McConnachie, Oceans 52 sells super-fresh fish that, unusually, can be grilled to order if preferred. Wet fish is sold too, and the McConnachies’ special batter is renowned across the Isle, along with a gluten-free batter that is available to those who suffer from allergy. They also offer an extra large, 14 ounce-plus cod fillet.

With the addition of the 14-seat restaurant with a menu that expands weekly with homemade delights such as steak parcels, cod in parsley sauce and fish pie, jacket potatoes, salads, in addition to fresh fish and chips. There is also a range of puddings including apple pie and treacle sponge with either syrup, cream or ice cream. And there are plans for daily specials.

Ian said: “We have done this offer as a thank you to customers,” with Jeanette adding: “We opened the restaurant in response to customers requests for a place where people could meet, eat and relax in comfortable surroundings while they eat. Food goes from fryer to fork all in great surroundings.”

All hot choices at Oceans 52 are fried in the best vegetable medium, and you can buy home-made fish cakes, succulent lamb kebabs, chicken and grilled burgers within many options. Hand-made five ounce burgers are among the specialities. Pukka pies are also available in a range of flavours.
