I arrived in England and the first thing I did was go to this place. They accept credit cards and I didn't have any cash and wasn't planning on getting any in England at any time. The fish here is good. It tastes fresh and has a great batter. That being said, a regular order of fish and chips is... More

An eatery that focusses on doing just a few things really well? This has to be a good thing.... I haven't eaten at every fish and chip shop in the UK so I can't say whether it's the best or not. But there's no doubt the fish really is very good - as fresh as you like and perfectly cooked... More

We went back to McDermotts, to the take-away , for a huge number of portions for visiting Canadians. We were served, despite the huge order, quickly, efficiently, helpfully and smilingly.....and the Cod and Haddock and Chips were all, as everyone has testified and our visitors too,smilingly, about as good as you could ever hope to get. It really is the... More

Cod and chips, cooked to perfection....sounds easy, but how many others get it so wrong. Even better than seaside fish and chips.

We have been to this restaurant on a number of occasions and have never been disappointed. To put it in context it's an out an out fish and chip restaurant with a take away adjacent. The staff are always really friendly and efficient and cannot do enough for you. When you arrive you may have to queue as there is... More

I was taken here by my mother-in-law and brother-in-law, who both recommended this highly, based on earlier visits they had made. How right they were! We parked easily and for free right outside the restaurant and I chose the Haddock and Chips with Garden peas. Having not eaten for 12 hours, I elected to go for the King-size. What arrived... More

Well to be fair, that is not our only reason for the journey, but for an amazing treat we take my mother there when we visit her from Wales! It really is the best. The food is amazing, fresh, hot and tasty and the batter is crisp. The most recent visit to this restaurant was to celebrate Mums 88th birthday... More

But next time I was in the vicinity, I convinced her and another family to try it out. And boy, was it a right choice. The fish is soft, cooky, the batter is golden, light, and the whole... More
