What a find! New to area so had to drive around looking out for a f&c shop. Couldn't have done better anywhere. Staff very friendly, knowledgeable, and great at what they do. Delicious all round. We'll be back.

Very very tasty - we had haddock and chips! Not open very much between Christmas and New Year but we got lucky. Quite possibly the best fish n chips I've had in the last 20 years.

I enjoy my fish and chips and have been to some good chips shops before and plenty of not so goos ones. I don't know what they do differently at this place but the haddock and chips was just brilliant. The batter was light crisp and really tasty.I wish it wasn't 200 miles from home
