It was early on a Friday so we were lucky to get a seat, even at this time (before teatime) it was busy. The tables were a little close together but we grabbed a table for... read more

Called in here on friday night at 9pm after working from 6.30am. Drove home 5 miles and had to microwave as they were already too cold to eat. Fish was a bit better but the chips were still poor and didn't taste great. Probably best to avoid late on or stop opening late to supply poor quality. I know they... More

Visited Tues 27th Jan. with two friends. This was our second choice and it certainly was worth making that choice. We had fish and chips with bread and butter and tea. We wanted mushy peas with one of the portions ,but were told that it would be a half hour wait because a fresh batch was being prepared, so we... More

Visited with my boyfriend Sunday evening. Greeted by a friendly bubbly member of staff. The place is clean and homely. Food is good and at a reasonable price and definitely will keep returning.

Great Fish and Chips - always busy. If you are in the area, you can either sit in or take away. Good value and fair on price.

Two friends, my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed an excellent fish and chips meal at Kingfisher on Tuesday evening this week. For just £8, we had fish and chips, tea, and bread and butter, which we thought was great value. We soon found a table in spite of the place being busy and service was speedy and pleasant. However, we... More
