Great shop. Lovley scallops 2 for 60p. Just don't eat in the street. Watch out for the seagulls. I had a bag of chips a few weeks ago and after eating 5 or 6 was attacked by the buggers and lost all my chips

I must admit to being a rare visitor to Chippies but this is my son's favorite. Chips are always fresh and staff always friendly.
