We arrived late afternoon on a Bank Holiday weekend. No problem getting a table. Staff extremely friendly and efficient. One fryer had broken down and another behind the scenes incident, they remained calm throughout. Having expected a long wait our fish and chip meals with tea and bread and butter arrived promptly. Absolutely hit the spot. We will be back.

After a day out we decided we fancied fish & chips and that we'd eat inside for a change. Although it was very quite( Wednesday teatime) it was very welcoming and we had the choice of where we sat. The waitress was very friending and gave us plenty of time to look through the menu. I however saw the specials... More

Went there on a Sunday evening. Receive a very nice meal, good batter, fresh fish and faultless service. The message must be Go when it is quiet.

I said to the young man serving: I can't eat this fish because it's dry and awful. He took the fish... More

A party of us had been out for the day and wanted some where too have a good plate of Fish & Chips. We were not disappointed in chosing this Restaurant. The 6 of us all had a well served portion of Fish/Chips, with Tea/Bread/Butter. Very well presented, piping hot,good servings.Would certainly go back again.
