Amazing fish and chip shop

Lovely food huge portions and friendly staff. It's often a wait as they are very busy and they cook food freshly to order but well worth it. Really great value for money and the place is spotless well worth a visit x

We have been twice, once when it was absolutely packed and once when it was quiet. Both times the food was outstanding, freshly made, no... More

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.
