Not good

Our party spent £45 for the one of the worst fish ever- I watched them lift every item from the freezer and chuck it in fryer. Service was slow Will not return

I was recommended this restaurant by Finn MacCool's Public House, and they called the order in for me. I ate part of it, but it was a lot of food and, honestly, not very tasty. The fish seemed to be soggy and it just had no flavor. Perhaps the restaurant across the way might have been better.

I have just recently landed a post of writing a small travel blog for a newspaper that you will see when all my travels are done. This was my very first stop and I will be doing most of the town however I don't think I will see anything like I did again. My partner and I decided that because... More

Unfortunately, I have to agree with all the bad reviews on here. We chose this chippy as it had large queues outside so thought the food must be good as opposed to the quiter one across the road. How wrong we were: the queues were just down to slow/inefficient service. The chips were cooked well but in some dreadful tasting... More

The food was very nice. Unfortunately it didn't make up for the unwelcoming attitude from the staff!

Chips were a bit soggy. Hot dog was actually a sausage. Apart from that it was okay. Service was okay but think I got the best deal going across the road.

Very disappointed with the attitude of the young staff , more interested in chatting to each other and their friends than serving. The chips were under cooked and the fish was left on the side while more chips were rushed cooked. Was overcharged and despite immediately pointing out the error was told I was wrong. Don't go there anymore ,... More

Had visited on a few occasion and I love the hip chip, you do have to wait but it's worth it. Best fish and chips in town.

This was across the street from another takeaway fish and chip. My husband was finished eating his meal by the time I finally received mine- he was across the street.. They weren't busy, just S L O W......for no reason that I can see. I was one of 3 customers waiting. The fish batter was different and not to my... More
