Great chippy

Friendly greeting on arrival and departure. Ordered fish and chips and pot of tea for 2. The tea was brought immediately and was a good cuppa. Didn't wait long for our freshly cooked fish and chips which were so delicious. Don't know when I have enjoyed fish and chips as much as I did today... read more

Best chips I've had in years, can also recommend the steak pie and gravy. Price maybe not as competitive as some pub chain deals but the quality of the food is worth every penny.

Went in on Saturday at about 10 to 12. Got seated straight away downstairs, but there was queues to get seated just after we went in. This was my first time eating here and I wondered why anyone would queue for fish and chips, however on tasting the freshly cooked fish and chips I can see why. Got small fish... More

As always, the portions were good and the fish was delicious! Excellent service and taste. Never stayed in for lunch but always prefer eat for F&C takeaway. Guaranteed outcome.

The young lady with the big smile on the takeaway counter needs to read this. I watch you serve the other day (Thursday) and was taken back with the approach you had towards every customer that you visited your shop, fantastic smile, great personality and nothing was too much for you, young or old everyone got the same treatment.

Fantastic freshly cooked fish and chips, lovely crispy batter and perfect chips. The waitress was an absolute delight, clean plates all round. Be back soon.

This is far better than any average chip shop. They not only serve very quickly but the food consistency of quality is a constant. Fabulous place with fresh fish, chips and mushy peas - bring on Friday

This was our 4th visit and we were very disappointed to have been served small portions of the haddock and certainly not up to the usual lovely large piece one normally gets. Did note however that some folks portions seemed very reasonable, must have just been our unlucky day. Will give it one more chance though!
