Pretty good fish & chips & the curry sauce is good too! rather short opening hours mean this place is no good for us in the evening as it closes too early. Staff friendly and the food is fresh & good quality. A bit on the expensive side but on balance the quality makes it worth it I suppose

By doing something simple really well they have succeeded in offering the best fish and chips in the west wight. Expertly fried fish with light crispy batter and fluffy chips plus the usual pies etc. I can say no more apart from the proprietors are always pleasant and efficient.

We always get fish and chips here when we come to Freshwater and take them down to the pier at Totland bay and eat them looking out to sea. Smashing. The fish and chips are always freshly cooked and very very tasty.
