Loved the food. Its just as us kiwis' like our Fush un chups. Busy place so consider phoning an order through. We picked up a menu when driving past earlier in the day. We got exactly what we hoped for and paid for.

Collect your fish and chips and head off to the beach. Mr Grumpy's had the best fish ever and the chips were hot crisp and delicious. Loved the meal from their as did the other 14 people I was spending the weekend with. Mr Grumpy's weren't grumpy at all.

We have had takeaways from Mr. Grumpy's on a couple of occasions and the last time it was something like $80 worth to feed 11 hungry adults. The chip, fish, potato fritters, sausages were all cooked very well. Nice clean oil obviously as none of the food was greasy but most certainaly tasty. As a takeaway it is up with... More

But the blue cod and chips are the best. Great fresh tasting fish and the most wonderful chips. Everyone at Foxton Beach knows about this place so there is a bit of a wait but itis well worth it.
