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

First went here 11 years ago on our first date. We go every year around Christmas and they are still as good now as they were then, tried to get away with paying what we paid then but they wouldn't let us LOL. We gave the staff a laugh though. We have never had a bad meal in all those... More

A proper fish and chip shop, I asked for a large fish and this was cooked to order, it was well worth the wait. As my fish and chips were being wrapped I asked for some batter bits, many chip shops throw these away, what a waste! We took these back to the place where we were staying and shared... More

Used to come here a few years ago regularly, had a bad experience and thought try again after a good year of not visiting....

I have been coming to Becketts since I was a kid with my family. They serve great fish and chips every time and always give so much food! Very good value and such a cute little eating area. Staff are always friendly. Only issue is that they don't serve dandelion and burdock anymore haha :P
