Massive portions of well cooked fish and chips. No colley here just great cod. Even though its away from the tourist area its popular.

Never been to such a popular chip shop- no need to advertise as its reputation carries itself- and so it should! The food is fantastic, fresh fish and delicious chips and meats, the portions are the largest and overall great value for money as it also seems to be the cheapest iv seen. Would always go again!

I have heard great things about this fish and chip shop so my boyfriend and I decided to check it out. Having looked at the portions they were massive. However, unlike some places, this place does a mini chop and chips (£3.25) and it is definitely just the right amount! My only criticism is that the fish is delicious but... More

Very good food on the whole and good value but the service is often shockingly bad. It is our local, so we do use it from time to time but are often kept waiting for long periods or get the wrong order!!
