Yes - a good tip from Trip Advisor. These were excellent fish and chips. Good price and the staff were friendly too. We had them by the sea and all were eaten without a word spoken, Lovely!

We had a Fish and Chip takeaway. The fish was lovely but the chips were not great although not expensive.

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

On a trip to the seaside, I think its always rude not to have fish and chips! We ordered a large portion to takeaway and share for a late lunch, which was more than enough! Priced around £6.50 crispy batter tender cod and nice chips all cooked fresh. There is plenty of seating opposite if you don't want to eat... More

It is what it is... Fish and Chips, but when it's done this well - it makes it special, beautiful battered haddock with stacks of chips, presented with a smile... All at a reasonable price, sets it apart from the rest, try it - you won't be disappointed.

This was used for take-away fish and chips but I could see that the restaurant was very busy! Well cooked fish, excellent chips and very good value. We had a take-away from here two nights in a row!

We paid a visit to this Fish and Chip shop and had a great meal, out of all the Fish and Chip shops I've eaten in, this is easily the best. Definitely worth trying, though if you Take away, watch for the Gulls.
