Superb Fish and Chips

We often go there at lunchtime and have the grilled fish which is very good. The staff are very attentive and will go the extra mile to provide you with exactly what you want. We also go at night and pick up some excellent fish and chips to take home.

Fab fish and chips every time whether you go into the restaurant or have a take away. Good value and delicious always. I have been a regular visitor for over 25 years now. Even when they were at their old premises. You can park locally and they put a few tables outside for a quick sit down.

My partner and I visited Papa's fish restaurant last Friday evening and I have to say we were disgusted at the complete lack of service. Firstly we had to sit at a dirty table and waited for a waitress to take our order. After waiting over 15 minutes and having seen other customers fussed over like Royalty I got up... More

Excellent choice of quality fish at Papa's. Meals are freshly prepared and served with a smile. Our favourite healthy option is grilled haddock. Yummy - its always delicious. Have a glass of wine or a hot mug of tea. If you still have room in your tummy after the meal, then the choice of sweets is mouth watering. Well done... More

Went here on the recommendation of people who've been before - and they were right! This is the kind of place you expect and want in a seaside town. There's nothing more British than fish and chips on the coast. The place is much bigger than it looks from the outside. There are a good number of tables and they... More

Never had bad fish and chips. The fish is cooked fresh and the batter does not repeat on you. The only trouble is it is so good we have it often!!

I have had the pleasure of this restaurant's food on two occasions now. The first time about a year ago when I was with a family group eating in the restaurant and recently when I had fish and chips to take out for the family. Both the restaurant food and the takeaway were excellent value for money. Super tasting fish... More

The Fish was tasty.Alas there was too thick a batter on it for my liking . The chips were plentiful. The service was good. We chose to take ours away but there is ample seating at the rear of the shop.
