We were shocked at the price of meals for ourselves we witnessed a jumbo fish come out raw in the middle served up. It was rectified and our meals arrived. The fish we ordered was mainly batter hardly any flesh... More

We've here a few times and never been disappointed. The Staff are cheery, helpful and very calm even at busy times. Three of us visited (over 60's) last Sunday (22nd March) about 4.00pm. Brilliant filling pensioners special, the curry sauce was delicious. The batter melted in your mouth and even writing about it wants me to go back. I didn't... More

Visited 22/03/15, first visit this year to our favourite chippy. Very disappointed, price increased to £9 for a haddock and chips, tea and bread. Thick, fatty batter with very little fish. Chips were just scraps. Family of 4, £36, will not be going again.

Popped in for tea after shopping with daughter. Ordered sausage chips and peas and fish cake and peas plus a milk. The food arrived very quickly and was piping hot, in fact the peas were boiling. We also received free bread and butter. The food was good, the sausage was better than most chip shop ones. Fishcake was nice with... More

Great fish and chips on a damp and grey February afternoon - although the sit-down section was very cramped.

Great fish and chips. If you are hungry and can manage huge portions then pop to Ernie Becketts. The mushy peas are delicious too
