From the waitresses to the cooks, everything was so nice. 1 fish and chips, 1 large fish and chips and peas + extra bread and a poached haddock and chips and parsley sauce, coffee and 2 teas. I used to visit 40 years ago on my motorbike with friends, so long but still very good. Best wishes and really nice... More

I've been here many times with the family and have never been disappointed. The fish and chips are always fresh and beautifully cooked to order. I live 200 miles away and always insist on visiting here when I visit my parents. I've had fish and chips in many places around the world.....these are up there with the best. Comments on... More

These are the best fish and chips that I have ever had. The chips are fantastic and the fish is cooked to perfection. To eat indoors is lovely, the staff are very nice. Although it is a bit expensive it is definitely worth it. I will definitely be visiting again. 😀

Visit quite a lot so that says a lot for the place. Have the Seniors menu which includes a sweet as well. Fish and Chips always excellent, piping hot straight from the fryer. Plenty of Bread and Butter and Tea or Coffee. Staff always been very friendly to us. The parking is not best as it is round the back... More

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.

My partner and our 2 year old son went on a Friday night. No booking required, and very quickly sat down. I had the larger fish and chips with curry sauce, my partner had normal fish and chips with gravy. The portions size was excellent and they tasted gorgeous. Really nice light batter and fish that just flakes. The real... More

These fish and chips are delicious theres no doubt, however the portion size is an absolute joke! Last week I had to order the special size because we were all left still hungry the week before. I was so shocked when I opened the paper I didnt know whether to laugh or complain, I called my husband over to see... More

Nice, fresh, modern and clean restaurant. Food arrived hot and quick. Found staff miserable, unhelpful and looked as if they didn't want to be there and we didn't dare ask for anything. I found it almost cringworthy to watch. We managed to grab the attention of a young girl that was friendly and willing to help. Maybe the older staff... More

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.
