Riley's Fish Shack: “Fabulous fish, locally caught, simply served”. This sums up pretty well what Riley’s Fish Shack is all about! Situated right down on the beach at St Edward’s Bay just below the Priory it’s certainly as close as you could hope to get to the sea.
The menu varies as it really is off the freshly caught catch so it’s sometimes first come first served for some dishes but they are always well stocked so guaranteed to have something to impress you with everything from wraps, chargrilled dishes to oven dishes cooked in their wood fired oven.
