Fish is nice amd cooked well with crispy batter...the chips are not so great and take away chips are shocking. So sit in and enjoy the great fish and average chips

Good fish and chip eat in or take away. Popular with locals and visitors alike. Never had a bad meal in or take away. Roadside parking, fabulous views across Douglas bay, Trams run past. Sit in side scrupulously clean and tidy. Would definitely recommend IT to all. Price reasonable.

We live just round the corner from this chippy and have visited several times (usually sit in). In the past we have had some reasonable meals...with fresh chips and nice fish, but the visit today was not good.(11 October 2014). The fish was fine....nice and hot and not greasy/oily....but the chips......ergh....lukewarm and soggy...for an outlet like a chippy, you must... More

Good food and not very expensive either. The cafe is very clean and the staff very helpful. Beautiful views over Douglas and the bay. Not easy access for anyone with mobility issues as railway line just outside so parking is across a busy road.

Freshly prepared good portions and the place is spotless, The seated area has amazing views across the bay and the electric trams go past the door which is a bit of a novelty. Highly recommended.

Having been twice during the stay, it's very busy both in the restaurant and takeaway sides. But not enough that it feels rushed. Excellent food, with good and quick service! Nice views over the sea to!... More

serves good fish and chips and there as a good takeaway service are service is quick- not cheap but price Ok-only drawback for locals is that it doesn't open late unless its a busy tourist period.

Turned up at 11.30 on bank holiday Monday, it had just opened. Asked if they do breakfast and was told that as it was the Grand Prix weekend they were too busy so weren't doing breakfast?!?!? We were the only people there.

We often pop down to eat in and have never been disappointed . Food appears not long after you have ordered and is hot and good. The staff are friendly and efficient.
