Have to agree with other reviewers

We only live a couple of miles away from this restaurant and having just returned home to an empty fridge we decided to give it a try. The Fish and chips were OK, but nothing out of the ordinary - my fish was covered in 'clumps' of batter. Two tea bags in a teapot with 2 cups costs £4 -... read more

I Work in Morley one day per week and have done for over ten years. Throughout the years i have used the restaurant and take out service and have never had a bad meal. I have read some of the reviews on here and maybe it is because there are a number of fish & chip outlets to go to... More

Came here (albeit to the take out counter) to get dinner for my whole family - two adults and two children. When I asked the girl behind the counter for small portions for the kids, she abruptly told me they didn't do small. It was standard, and that is that. The fish isn't the best here, but the chips were... More

Over priced over rated. Can't see the attraction to this place. They cook in cheap fat. Can tell by the smell, and taste. I've owned a fish and chip shop so feel qualified to comment. Only ever been this once to please my grandson. Won't go again.

We come here every week and it is the best place to get fish i know. the staff are always friendly and helpful and owners friendly as well. i wouldn't go anywhere else for fish and chips. prawn cocktail and fish cakes are just as good.

Turned up at 7 o'clock on the dot for a family meal. Was cheerfully told on arrival that last entry was at 7 and it was one minute past. The cheery girl went on to tell us that if we'd arrived two minutes earlier it would have been fine. I honestly thought this sort of attitude and service had disappeared.... More

We had food from the main menu a special haddock and a regular haddock with chips and mushy peas. The special fish was nearly all batter which was thick and pappy hardly any fish it was no bigger than the regular one. The chips were bland and anemic as for the mushy peas they were disgusting the worse we have... More
