This shop should update it's website. It says it's open on Sundays and I travel to it. Shut!!! I can't therefore comment on current standards as I couldn't get in.

If you are looking for a fantastic chippie, look no further. Renowned for their delicious battery style chips, great selection of fish and other items to accommodate most people's taste, this fish and chip shop is excellent. Friendly, family run business. Excellent portion sizes too. Can't fault it :))

After reading Trip Advisor reviews, we decided to go for fish and chips here - children and adults. Delicious! Very, very good. No contest - go there!

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!
