The task of reviewing this Weston-super-Mare restaurant was a mouth-watering prospect. There aren’t many fish-loving folk in the Bristol and North Somerset area who haven’t heard of Papa’s, so it was with high expectations that we visited one Saturday afternoon. Owner Adam Papa took the reins of this multi-award-winning restaurant some 22 years ago and hasn’t looked back since. The first thing we noticed on arrival was how immaculately clean the tastefully decorated dining room was. Specials boards adorned the walls detailing the latest catch and drawing attention to the wine selection, and the uniform-wearing waiting staff were plenty in number. The kitchen area is partially in view, so we were able to watch the efficient operation of the kitchen in action.

The menu’s ample choice caters for all tastes with fresh, fish-based dishes complemented by a range of burgers and steaks. My partner and I went for two main-stays of the menu – scampi and plaice, both of which truly lived up to the hype. For dessert we ordered ice cream from the board, although a separate full dessert menu was also available. Papa’s boasts special offers for children and senior citizens, as well as special deals at certain times of the day. Papa’s fish and chips are exceptional, so whether you take a seat or take away, you’ll enjoy freshly made, delicious, value-for-money meals – it’s easy to see why they’ve gained so many mentions in the likes of The Telegraph and The Guardian and been voted for in The Daily Mirror’s top 20 fish restaurants by independent reviewers. They also hold a five-star food hygiene rating and have maintained a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence for 2017.
