Great chippy!

We always visit Smiffy's when visiting on our annual holiday. The food is delicious, the staff very friendly. Great fish and chips! Highly recommended.

Everything seemed to be out of stock!! No fishcakes, no curry sauce, no pizza. For the small choice menu anyway was very disappointing. They were closing tomorrow so might be the case. But still a let down. Then got the battered chicken breasts as a final choice. Only to be served frozen chicken nuggets. Now for £5.95 and only 6... More

For a take away when having failed to book a restaurant during the schools October week holiday! Service quick and efficient; freshly cooked fish - batter OK, not really crisp enough (undercooked); chips reasonable. Decent enough portion sizes.

I ordered a king rib supper from counter and was told 5 minute cook time as rib was cooked to order so I automatically thought I was going to get a good quality meal, how wrong I was. I paid £5.40 which I thought was a little on the expensive side but hey-ho. I was travelling by car back to... More

One of the few places open at 6pm on a Sunday evening for fast food while travelling through, some hotels were open but would be too time consuming. Service was pleasant and we chose to sit outside away from the music inside, food was good to satisfy our hunger but not special. Outdoor tables not too clean but got us... More
