I am disappointed to hear of your dissatisfaction following your recent visit, but would like to point out that we never reheat left over food and also the cost of the items ordered comes to £6.40, nowhere near £9. So unless you have neglected to mention other food purchased you will have been overcharged. If you can give me some... More

Often take a drive from lymington over here and park up in the forest to enjoy. Very tasty, good portions too. Crispy batter and soggy chips, what more could you want! Also get to put your own salt and vinegar on. Tricky to park sometimes, but worth it. Yummy!!

Not much more to say, really great you can add your own salt and vinegar as I like a lot of vinegar. Clearly popular. Crispy batter on cod but not greasy. Proper chips not just those hard small pointy pieces (ends of the potato). Would go back if it was local.

My wife said I had over ordered when she saw the size of the portions! That said my kids (6, 8, 11) polished off most of it - less a few chips. Great Cod and chips and for a pretty good price. Staff were friendly and service was good. I ordered 5 portions and had to wait a few minutes... More
