We've enjoyed takeaways from here before but this time we were very disappointed. Our meal was very greasy and soggy, the fish was especially unappetising and we didn't eat very much of it. A real let down this time.

Excellent fresh fish, lovely new potato chips, cooked fresh and great friendly service. Everything was hot and stayed hot until we got home. Definitely worth going inland to buy.

Had an amazing fish supper from here. The fish was generous in size and the batter was crispy and very tasty. I ordered a small chips and struggled to eat it all. If you are in Freshwater then you would be a fool not to buy from them.

We've been coming to the island for 3 years and a holiday wouldn't be complete without these excellent fish and chips - taken down and eaten on Feshwater Bay beach. Perfection!
