Great Fish and Chips, below average service.

Great fish and chips and kids dine for free. Nice restaurant, although service is below par as they kept forgetting items and some items failed to be served.

We've been here a few times for lunch, the food is lovely. The restaurant is nicely decorated, modern, clean & comfortable. The staff are attentive and friendly. Highly recommended. Parking can be tricky as its popular.

This restaraunt has had a good reputation for many years. It is a Fish and cjip restaraunt, i do not think it does much else.Eat in or take away. Limited parking, in front and behind. It is not licenced.

Top quality value for money meals at the Kingfisher. We love our fish and chips and have found the Kingfisher to be the most consistent in West Yorkshire.
