Very good traditional Chippy

It is a proper traditional chippy that does fresh food and big portions. Clearly popular with locals as it was busy all the time and has long opening hours. Try it!

Service was great, fish 'n chips really good. Right in the middle of town so very easy to access. Service was very quick even though place was extremely busy.

Thought about the more flash 'Flash in the plan' - friendly enough, quick service but tasty fish and chips. When I saw the fish I thought 'We're gonna need a bigger boat!'

Wasn't the best wasn't the worst fish and chips I've had. Wish the service would have been a bit nicer, but beggars can't be choosers.

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
