The best fish and chips I have eaten in a long time!

Great for take away or sitting down. I had fish and chips but there was a wide menu. Open on Sundays too until quite late so that was a bonus! Excellent service and great value! A constant stream of customers indicates that business was good!

I didn't actually have fish and chips, I had a large chips, a battered sausage and a pineapple fritter ( it was for two of us...) and it came to a total of £4 so good value. Was very nice. You typical greasy tasty takeaway! The seating area was in a very modern style and looked very nice! Would return.

We ordered and the food came very quickly, we were hungry and we were not disappointed with the Fish and Chips Special Deal including Mushy Peas, Bread and Butter, Pot of Tea. We thought they were above average chips and the fish was good too. As other reviews have said the café lets down their excellent food with untidy café,... More

Needed quick food after our journey to Northumberland and Carlos provided that. The cod and chips we ate inside was first rate. The place is let down by untidy appearance with food from previous diners on the tables and floor. Condiment containers on the table were sticky to the touch and need a good clean. It's a shame that they... More

Went there for an afternoon bite to eat and had the meal deal where we got a large battered sausage, chips, a choice of side and a can of pop for £5.75. Really good value and the portions are really good. The chips were nice and the staff friendly. Well worth a visit if you're in the mood for fish... More

Saw reviews and couldn't wait. However disappointed. Service was fast but although the fish was OK the plate of chips produced was poor. A handful of decent size chips and lots of 'scraps' Just scraps of fat really! Sorry I don't complain often but it was certainly not 'award winning' food. Maybe this was just a bad night?

We ate inside. The fish & chips were no better than anywhere else, but way better than their very soggy steak pie. The floor was greasy and slippery due to spilled chips lying around.

Good selection on the menu and everything I ate was first rate and tasty! Pleasant staff, efficient service, small/intimate eating venue. Possibly a bit too hot/claustrophobic when full, could do with A/C. Enjoyed the food!

Attended the Tom Jones concert last Saturday. Found it difficult to get food in Alnwick with everyone there so ended up in Carlos. What a pleasant surprise! Great welcome and fast service. Some of the best fish and chips I have ever had.
