Rubbish don't bother. Go elsewhere.

Having Looked forward to fish and chips which we dont have often. What a disappointment Fish was totally rank and under cooked. Over rated chip shop. Left all of my dinner.

I always have a grilled mini cod and chips. The mini cod is ample for me as they have generous portions at good prices. I've gone here for years.

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.

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!
