Second time we have had fish and chips here and both times have been excellent. The fish really is lovely and much better than their competitors on the Barbican. Can't fault it.

Best fish and chips I have had in years and reasonably priced. This was at the end of our holiday rental road and was recommended by locals... If you like fish and chips then I would visit here... Best bar none

Went back again this year on holiday. Still one of the best fish and chip shops I have been to. It's a small place but go there and you wont be disappointed. Great staff and great food.
