Took a bit of finding but was well worth the effort. The staff are very smart and accommodating. Premises were spotless. I specifically asked for a tail piece of cod in batter which was no problem for them to cook. The batter was so light and the fish was extremely good quality. Whenever we are on holiday we will definitely... More

We are touring the area and searched trip advisor for a Fish & Chip restaurant. We were very happy with our choice. The service was excellent, very friendly and welcoming, even though it was getting towards the end of the day. The place was immaculately clean and the food portions were generous. We will definitely visit this gem again. It's... More

We visited "Browns" after finding it online and it didn't disappoint. We ate in the cafe and the service was fantastic, things from the menu were recommended to us and as we were having trouble deciding on the curry sauce samples were given without a need to ask. The meals were great, myself and my daughter are gluten intolerant and... More

My first gluten-free fish and chips! Crispy batter, generous piece of chunky cod and traditional chips. Although slightly off the beaten track if you don't want to eat in their restaurant it is close enough to drive to the beach and eat them on the sea front. No waiting time for gluten-free, other gluten free options also available.

Big portions, fresh fish. Lots of sauces and sides. Gets extremely busy on a Friday evening but they have lots of staff to serve. Very much deserves its high star rating!

Tried it because it had very good ratings on TA The size, quality and variety of batter etc sets it apart from the rest. Very busy but that's a good thing.

We went here as a group two kids and three adults. Having heard great reviews we plumped for the haddock and large cods, and mushy pea fritters. It was great the we could bring in drinks from next door. The waiter was very attentive. However the fish were quite dry once served. Hot plates in a 26 degree heat did... More
