I came here with my family for lunch. The place is very nice with comfortable seating. There was quite a long wait for our food but when it arrived the fish and chips were excellent, very tasty. When we had finished our meals we waited a long time for the waitress to return, in the end one of our party... More

If you're hungry and you like fish and chips this is the place to go. It also has an eat in area. They cater for group parties too, we had a fish supper party before Christmas. The size of the portions are very generous. We go here almost every time we visit. Gets busy during summer.

Been using the Golden Fillet on and off for the last few years now. In general the food used to be good. Used to be is the word. Seems like since they changed the cook the food has right down hill. We had fish and chips the other day, one cod was well over cooked and the other haddock was... More

Thought I'd order rock for a change. Thick, unseasoned, greasy batter, greasy chips and hardly any meat on the fish. Based on this experience I will actively discourage people from going there. It was that bad!

We have been regular customers of The Golden Fillet for many years and, unfortunately, on our last three/four visits we have thought the food is not up to the previous standard we have enjoyed here. We have noticed that a different person appears to be carrying out the frying, maybe this has something to do with it. On speaking to... More
