Though not as crispy crunchy as normal batter, this was a really nice version for those of us watching... read more

Come every week for fish and chips and usually fantastic and staff so nice. Today fish was lovely but chips were awful did not seem cooked. Had a couple felt sick all afternoon, thought at first oil maybe different? Dissapointed but sure it is bad day

Come here every year on the first evening of our holidays. Portions always huge and delicious! It seemed even nicer than usual this year. Light fluffy chips, delicious crispy fish and a generous cup of tea. The waitress was very jolly and served us quickly. What more could you ask for???!

Had hoped for good quality fish & chips. Chips were ok but soggy, peas and gravy only served in small cartons for £1each, gravy quite thin, peas quite good! Fish,batter good on outside, under cooked on inside, fish was thin and surprisingly had skin on, a first for Cod (for me). Disappointing,very disappointing!

We had great fish and chips here. Fresh fish with a great batter – light, crunchy and not at all greasy. Lovely chips too. Friendly staff. Pretty bare bones decor in the restaurant though.

Set well away from the beach we decided to give this chippy a try based on trip advisor reviews. We were not disappointed. We decided to eat in. Fairly basic cafe setting but clean and tidy. Lovely fish and chips. Would definitely recommend you give it a try.
