Great fish and chips.

A friend and I visited here for lunch, today, Friday. Although it was very busy our wait was short and we were served almost straight away. We ordered haddock and seabass which were excellent as usual. The lemon cheesecake dessert was very good but it needed a thinner biscuit base. Ginger biscuits... read more

This restaurant is literally more than a 'chippy'! The food is freshly cooked and it tastes absolutely brilliant. I've visited many times and we've never had a problem with the food, service or staff. All the above are great and make that experience even better. The specials that they have on are also great if you fancy something different. It... More

Visited the restaurant based on a recommendation. Food was great, cooked to perfection and the fish tasted really fresh. We all had different choices and everyone was delighted with their meal. Prices were very reasonable and the restaurant was modern and clean.

My wife and I took our 7 year old granddaughter to this restaurant after we had been shopping and we all really enjoyed it.The fish and chips were without doubt the best I have ever had and being a Yorkshireman I have had lots and lots of fish and chips over the last 60 years or so.

Came here for dads birthday lunch. Was really really busy but the staff kept us informed so it didn't feel bad. They have an excellent gluten free selection, it's so tasty!! Always love to visit. And it's about £13 ph with Guinness and dessert included so really not expensive to eat in!

A bit out of the way, but well worth the short trip. Nice clean, well presented restaurant with comfortable seating and embiance. Waitress service too. The prices are reasonable and worth the bit extra as the fish and chips are cooked fresh and taste delicious. Home made chips and light batter. Recommend

The best fish restaurant I've ever eaten in. Always busy so I don't believe I'm the only one who thinks so.! Staff are friendly & polite and the service excellent. The cod is my favourite, beautiful sweet white fish & lovely golden batter and fresh chips. My only tip here is, that if you don't have a large appetite, have... More

We arrived at about 1330hours and we had to wait about 10 minutes for a table because they were very busy, but the wait was worth while. We ordered small cod and chips with mushy peas and pot of tea, and the food when it came was top quality and well worth the money. We had a small fish and... More

enjoyed our meal - 1Cod and 1Scampi. My fish was very nice. Nicely cooked batter - crispy with no stodgy bits. Mushy peas were how I remember my Mam's tasting - proper home cooked flavour. We were there on a Tuesday night 6.30ish and it was quite busy. Service a little slow but I put that down to the fact... More
