Ate from here on a windy Thursday evening in August. Staff were friendly and attentive, and took care in preparing our order. As other reviews note, food is cooked to order - great to see. The shop is absolutely spotless, and the food tasted great. Chips perfectly cooked, not in the least bit greasy. Highly recommended.

Arrived on a busy Saturday night, staff completely unflustered, explained the queuing system. Fresh cooked to order, so a short wait, but worth it. Fish that actually tastes of fish, no soggy bottoms, if only I lived closer....

Staff were very helpful and efficient, both on the phone and in person, taking our order, cooking our choices fresh to order, and lending us the salt and vinegar bottles to take out to the... More

A busy little shop that serves excellent cod and chips, all freshly cooked while you wait. Could have used extra vinegar though
