Best Fish and Chips in the Area

We have visited here probably 25+ times, and never had a bad meal. The staff are always polite and the prices on a... read more

Everything was cooked to a T, and very plentiful, served hot to the adults, and we were asked if we... More

Some had the special, dressed crab with salad & boiled spuds, lovely. The kids had scampi, again, huge portions. Orders taken at the table... More

Quick service despite continuous run of customers. Non greasy and well presented food. Servers friendly. The cars parked a long way around speak for its popularity.

An excellent meal. Very welcoming clean and child friendly. Excellent meal with good service and those extra touches like sweets with the bill and lollipops for the children when leaving. Nothing too much trouble and everything done with a willingness and a smile.
