Love having lunch at Maddy's. Love the milk shakes. Quick service with a smile. If you don't have time to sit down and eat you can always buy take away from the chip shop

A lovely fish, chips and mushie peas meal we've had in a long time. Yasminda who served us was delightful, very warm and friendly. Would eat here again and we highly recommend this chippy.

Just had fish and chips. I live 5 min walk away but chips were cold, lukewarm at best, when we ate them at home. Very disappointing. Will be trying other chip shops.

Had a fish and chip supper down on the harbour wall and Maddys was the chosen food. Great little find, great fish and chips, good valve and fresh food! Recommend this to friends and family in the future. Service good too!
