local fish and chip shoop

Shop is clean and tidy but staff are somewhat young and inexperienced. chips are a bit soggy and expensive. Fish could be better and would like to know if it is cod or some other foreign imported fish. shop is usually busy but there can be a long wait for the order to be ready. could do better
