excellent, honest food.

Family of 5 all stuffed to the gills with delicious food, cooked with skill & care. Some of us ordered small cod, thank goodness, 2 pieces of thick, golden, crispy fillet & a mountain of chips.

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.

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
