Possibly the worse fish and chips I've tasted in a long time. Chips were anaemic and the batter on the fish was soggy. The young server didn't even offer salt and vinegar on the chips, exactly the same for the guy in front who had to ask for it and was met with a vacant youthful stare. We won't return.

We called in for an evening meal of fish and chips and when we saw the sit-in restaurant area we were delighted,as we had previously thought it was take-away only. When we visited they were extremely busy but were still able to serve us promptly with a very good meal at a reasonable price. The staff ,despite being so busy... More

Simply the very best. Boneless and skinless fish, chips are fried properly so you get a crunch but a fluffy middle. Fish as said is great, pies made in the shop Tartar sauce made at the shop. One of my favourite takeaways is fish and chips so I have had quite a few in my life and this shop offers... More

These guys really need to reconsider the portion size. 14 chips and a tiddly fish rattled around an expensive looking box. Come on! The phrase cheap as chips is real.

Excellent Fish bar, everything cooked fresh to order and of excellent standard. The chips are the crunchiest and fluffiest I have ever had and NOT greasy. The fish differs each day depending on what has been caught and again lovely non-greasy batter and really crispy and tasty. The chicken is also beautifully cooked, not dried out. I have Fish and...

This is the fastest I have ever posted a review, having just eaten the last chip on my plate! Both had hake and chips, and I also had mushy peas. The fish was packed in a cardboard box, much better than the usual polystyrene as it kept the batter crisp and stopped it going soggy. The generous portion of chips... More

Not one for fish and chips usually however had a friend staying and wanted a quick dinner option. Their fish and chips were outstanding, not greasy at all. The service was great and the food equally. If I wasn't on a diet I would go there more often lol !!
