The food managed to be dry and greasy at the same time and, if it's locally sourced, fresh and hand cut as claimed they should fire the suppliers – the chef should... More

Fish and chips takeaway, and that is precisely what we got, not a smile or a thank you. Had better fish and chips too, would not go back.

The fish and chips are brilliant. I now live in Cornwall and since moving down here I've been looking for a real tasty fish and this fish shop is the nearest I've found to compare to whitby .I will return whenever I'm in the area . Give them a try you won't be disappointed
