Amazing Fish & Chips

We had a family day out and really enjoyed the large fish & chips for four cooked fresh in front of our eyes and only took about 10mins if that ! it seems a very busy little place and we are not surprised if I lived closer I would go every week one wood for this place AMAZING

Typical fish, chips and mushy peas, plus usual extras. Nicely cooked. Small but Good, fast service, local fish, always busy.

Best chips we have had in ages! Warmed us up on a cold Sunday lunch time stroll! Freshly made chips cooked to perfection

Excellent fish, great batter, good chips, what more do you need from a chippy? Sometimes when the cruise ships are in, the queue is down the street with many European tourists grabbing a fried feast to eat slumped out in the park round the corner.

We purchased some cod and chips, wandered past the church and ate them sitting on the river beach wall looking out over the river. Felt like old times with nicely cooked food bringing back the flavours of when the chippy was the only take away.

Have grabbed fish and chips here twice as was late. Pieseas was was recommended as the best fish n chips and award winning, Never again. Pretentious and Overpriced. Not at all exceptional with hard chips and thin tasteless batter, served reluctantly by first time counter assistant who couldn't wait to get rid of customers and close and secondly by Andy... More

Saw the TripAdvisor stickers so was expecting a lot. We just had chips. Mine were "anaemic" and mostly either thin and crunchy or fat and soggy. Wasn't keen on the lady squeezing a chip to see if it was cooked then putting it back in the fryer.
