One huge slab of cod fried in a light batter with superb tarter sause, malt vinegar, and a load of chips for about $9. Can't beat it.

I have visited here with my partner on many occasions. It is a wonderful restaurant, and the staff are really polite. We are always seated really quickly and the service is really good. The cod and chips are the best I have ever tasted. The portion size is very reasonable for the price. The surroundings are lovely. Really can't complain... More

Although a little more expensive than I would normally pay, it is in the centre of beautiful Durham City, very comfortable with fast and attentive staff, and always to the best standard of good old Fish and Chips, A must if you are a visitor or a local. Good luck with your fishing here at Durham

Lovely fresh fish and chip meal in the heart of Durham. Ideal after a busy day visiting the city. Food and service good, toilets a bit of a track.

Second time I have been here. The first time I sat in the restaurant with my daughter. Yesterday I visited the take-away section with my husband. They were close to closing, but staff were polite and efficient. Our fish was cooked to order so very hot - excellent quality of fish. Fewer chips than I expected, but a good number.... More

Very tasty fish & chips, including less common sorts of fish. Shame they ran out of beer! We had the last 2 bottles & that wasn't what was listed on the menu.
