Good old fashioned fish and chips

Brings back many many happy memories. Always visited every Saturday with my mum and dad, I think it bacame almost a ritual. Anyway not as good as it was but still decent enough and gets 4 stars instead of 3 due to the memories. Where's the man in yellow gone from outside?

not as busy as I remembered it years ago but then half the shops have gone in the town. Though a little old fashioned inside - rows of bench seats, still clean and well maintained and the staff friendly, quick and attentive. Food still of high quality and prices still reasonably low.

In fairness, this was my first visit, and to give the benefit of the doubt, would visit again, but found it all very greasy and very small portions for the price.

Have been before and are regular visitors. Yes above average on cost but you get what you pay for. Pleasant staff, good food and they will cook as requested. We like the fish cooked with extra crispy batter and they do it beautifully every time

We visited the seafarer as a family to eat in. Restaurant was quite cold, food was average, portions could have been bigger. Staff were ok but not the friendliest. Won't be visiting again unfortunately

When we lived within a couple of miles, this seemed a reasonable town centre chippy to try. A free car park is next door so that was a good start. We found the portions & quality of the fish to be excellent. We would however say that the batter was never fully cooked through & similarly the chips could have... More

I haven't eaten in here for years but thought i'd pop in for lunch in my dinner hour at work. Forgot how gorgeous the food is here!

Have been coming here for years but tend to go elsewhere now as the prices seem high and the portions have become tight. Good chippy and friendly staff but could at least fill the tray up a little more considering the price difference in comparison tho other local chippy's.
