Me and my partner have been coming here for several years, the food was always great and fab value for money too. Weather it was a cooked breakfast or a classic fish and chips! The waitress's were very polite and always took the time to make sure you were well catered for, even during busy periods. Always smiling and lots... More

This place is always busy and the food is good. I think a bit of a spruce is in order though as the place looks shabby and the girls serving could do with some newer and cleaner pinnies. They seem to lack experience and they are very young. Our last visit was somewhat disappointing but I would still go there... More

Always busy, which is a good sign, the fish here is always lovely and the service is very fast and friendly. Other options besides fish and chips available.

Conveniently situated opposite the railway station, we were very hungry after a long train ride. Good size portions of chips and chicken. Flaky, moist cod freshly cooked. We were eating in and were surprised to find our meals served in cardboard take away cartons. A tip,guys. Fish and chips are better on a plate when sitting down.

Ok ... here's the review from my 4 children aged between 3 and 12. The consensus, after a short discussion was that the chips were ' like cold slugs' . In addition the chicken nuggets were overcooked. We tried the slimy chips ourselves and promptly drove to the nearest bin and deposited the remaining items there. Do not go here.
