This hugely popular fish restaurant has recently been refurbished to make it brighter and more spacious, with a trendy, city bistro ambience. Storm continues to offer superbly fresh fish dishes, beautifully presented, and served by friendly, attentive staff.
The choices on the inventive menu are guided by the best of the season’s local produce. Owner Pete Miles, who also runs The Cruel Sea, is keen to support sustainable fishing, and encourages diners to try less well known fish that are tasty and plentiful. He is himself a fisherman and may turn up with freshly caught sea bass, local crab, or oysters from sister company Othniel Oysters. The chefs at Storm also use organic vegetables and produce from local market gardens where possible. You might start your meal with a simple appetiser of bread and olives, succulent scallops, or mussels in a wine and cream sauce, then move on to Goan fish curry or roast cod topped with Welsh rarebit. Desserts are just as delicious as the fish dishes, so save some room for afters – the trio of small puds is highly recommended.
Apparently local restaurateurs come to eat here, which is high praise indeed. Booking is certainly recommended, as Storm can get very busy.
