As fish and chips go, this take out and cafe have consistently produced tasty meals for a good few years now. We have tried others in the area but keep coming back to Kingfisher.

After going to kingfisher for years and years I am very disappointed the last 3 visits. Portions have got smaller, yet prices have gone up! Fish is wet and soggy, sticks to paper and chips are undercooked.

We still visit the restaurant twice a week and the food is always very good but since they have the facility to have chips 'well done' they are so much nicer. Not everyone likes well done chips but my advice is just try them well done for the one time and you will never want them white again.

I've been going here for 15 years and it's always great. There's usually somewhere to sit down in the spacious restarant side and service is pleasant and quick. Generally go there at lunchtime as we're travelling up or down the country and it has never let us down.
