My son had heard that Rick Stein the TV chef recommended the fish and chips and so we thought lets see what the fuss is all about. The haddock was wonderful and the chips excellent. We agree with Rick.

The pork dish on the specials menu outside caught my eye, we went inside and waited to be seated but not even a smile from the waitress. The restaurant isn't licensed. I left 3/4 of my meal only eating the chips because the pork was over done, dry and I didn't like the peas. When I went to the counter... More

When we questioned the price the owner come over and was very rude. Telling us... More

Your fish is fried to order and just melts in your mouth. Service was friendly; not much room for customers to move at the counter as it is quite small

I was highly recommended by friends for this place. On entering the takeaway part there was a lot of confusion to what queue was for restaurant, waiting and still to be served. After asking the people around I got to the front of house cashier, no smile, to be honest she was totally fed up in my opinion and clearly... More

We always welcome our foreign and local customers but as you can imagine if the shop is busy it is difficult... More

They have a sign at their takeaway counter saying "Gluten free options available" so we got a portion of GF battered fish (haddock), chips and mushy peas for my wife, and I had the normal version. Cooked to order (obviously such requests are considered normal), so was as fresh as possible. A few minutes wait, but worth every moment. Very... More

We were looking for a no hassle meal. Fish and Chips is what we wanted because we were in the Scotland by the sea. So we ate here one early evening at the beginning of June. Service was quick and easy, seating was comfortable, it wasn't crowded or noisy. The food was good and well prepared and not expensive. It... More
