Good fish and chips

Often eat here at Maddy's but the last time it was a little bit more greasy than I would have liked but the flavour is still lovely and the chips are crunchy

Tried the shop for the first time and the chips were of good quality and were delicious. Could of done chicken legs as well as quarters as the quarter has a lot of chicken and legs are preferable.
