The chips tasted like oven chips, the portions were small, fish was slimey, there was no kids menu or flexibility and they only accept cash. Go to Sylvesters for proper fish and chips!

Eat in or take away, lovely fish. You can also either eat your order in the pub opposite or take your drinks from the pub into the chippy restaurant with your meal

It is a fish and chip shop with seating and an extended menu. Service was good and it was very well cooked.

You can take your food across the road to eat it at the pub and also get a drink. A brilliant idea! The fish is cooked to perfection and they add a slice of lemon.

Great fish and chips with the bonus of being owned by the pub opposite. I thought it would be perfect, I ordered the food whilst my wife ordered the drinks, I was horrified to find the only ale available was draft Tetleys, Yuk!! It would be so much nicer to enjoy have had a local real ale to wash the... More

Visited with family on a Friday night. We were lucky to get two tables inside the restaurant. The decor is lovely and it was nice that we could bring drinks from the pub opposite. The service was excellent and the food was fantastic. Probably the best fish and chips I've had in a long time. Great value for money and... More

Although it is a fish & chip restaurant, we bought ours from the attached take away. To our taste they were cooked to perfection, not greasy at all and were presented with a slice of lemon and a sprig of parsley, a nice touch. The portions were not what we would call large but was sufficient for our appetites. The... More
