Fish was a bit greasy, but nice white fish. Staff need a bit more get up & go attitude especially at clearing away plates from empty tables after taking your order, We were also given 4 sets of cutlery for a meal for 2.. ??? Price £18.30 with t bread & butter

A very expensive fish and chip shop. The fish are on the small side. The one thing going for it it that one can sit in.

We have visited this fish and chip shop on several occasions, and the fish is always dripping in oil ! Yuk ! Chips not to bad. Going to find another place to visit, when we travel through Northwich.
