Fish was absolutely perfect, white and flakey with just the right amount of batter BUT the chips weren't cooked through and were anaemic and underdone.

Not overly impressed as Maddy's came highly recommended... More

The fish was so fresh and white, coated in an excellent batter. The service was quick, and we were served by a very efficient waitress, who was very good with the customers,... More

We both had fish and chips, very tasty, big portions and great value for money. The service was also excellent. Well worth... More

The chips for both me and my partner were soggy, and floppy. not one of mine or his were the slightest bit crispy and some were barely cooked!!! Very... More
