We would go every week but too fattening so we've cut it down to every other week. Best fish and chips ever?

Visited this Restaurant for the first time with my wife who is a coeliac and on a strict gluten free diet. We went with friends who had advised the Restaurant the day before of my wife's strict dietary requirement. We were warmly welcomed by friendly and efficient staff. Excellent Skate and chips for my wife and double cod and chips... More

The haddock was very white and fluffy in a crisp, light not too oily batter and the chips were good chunky chips but what really set it apart was it arrived at the table still piping hot. The creamy tartar sauce was also delicious, we had two pots! My first visit and certainly a soon to be repeated treat.

We live quite near to McDermott's so we enjoy their fish and chips on a regular basis. I have to admit this is the best you will find anywhere, everything is cooked fresh and the chips are the best I have ever tasted. We have told so many people and we know that people even travel from West Wickham to... More

Our third visit tonight. Excellent fish and chips again, as we are coming to expect. The staff are brilliant! We took my partner's mother, who is afflicted with Alzheimer's. We were all warmly welcomed, given a corner table as we requested, and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Full credit to everyone there for making it such a comfortable time.

This is an absolutely gorgeous restaurant. The fish and chips are always fresh. The little extras as in the fresh bread and the pickles AND the little fish starters are beautiful too. You always get a warm welcome from all the staff. My parents come over from Ireland and this is their favourite restaurant that we have to go to... More
