This fish and chips restaurant serves delicious food. - Yes, a little more expensive than most but definitely worth it. The food is freshly cooked to order. The fish was fresh and tasty.

Always visit here when i'm in the area. I love the warm bread and prawn appetisers. Large portions of delicious fresh fish. Service fantastic, friendly and welcoming. Their new sundaes are really tasty too!

The best in town. Staff are incredibly well organised and efficient. The longest wait I've had is less than 5 minutes. Highly recommend for tasty and fresh fish. The chips aren't bad either!

Once you have tried McDermotts fish & chips you will never go anywhere else. Service excellent and staff so cheerful and welcoming. Restaurant is spotlessly clean. I would recommend to anyone.

McDermotts is an amazing restaurant. Not only is the food first class, the staff offer excellent customer service. We take my mum who has Alzheimer's. The staff are always so kind, friendly and patient. We are regular visitors and are planning our next visit!

Take away and restaurant. The restaurant can be very busy so it is advisable to book. Smallish tables, attentive staff, freshly cooked product. Can be generous portions.

I eat out all the time and therefore have considerable experience of whats on offer. This is the best Fish and Chips by an enormous margin. I do a round trip of 40 miles to go and eat there, it is that good
