Great Fish and Chips !

Ate here after a visit for a look round Eyemouth's attractions. Decided on a Fish and chips tea so thought we would try the sit in restaurant instead of Gaccopazzi's for a change. Not disappointed the Cod fish tea with bread and butter was great. plenty food in the portion and the tea to wash it... read more

Mackays has a nice restaurant area overlooking the bay. There is a free car park a hundred yards up the road. The food is predominantly fish based but they also have a selection of delicious cakes and ice creams. We wanted fish and chips and a pot of tea. We were advised to have a "fish tea"; which had the... More

Had to ask but they had gluten free ice cream cones available so got to sit by the beach which was lovely. They had a choice of about 12 flavours to choose from. I had orange swirl which was very plain and not much taste but my hubby had a chocolate brownie one which was full of flavour.

My family and I wanted to order one of their sea food salads each at the cafe part of this restaurant. As we had a small dog with us, we were told we could still order and could sit outside. There were 3 separate eating area's so we got settled in one of them at the front. After 10 minutes... More

Whilst visiting Eyemouth I thought it was only right trying fish and chips and ice cream from Mackays as when I was young it was beautiful however the fish and chips werent like I remembered and the choice of ice cream was pretty poor not like I remember either. Cleanliness wise it was spot on.

Visited this restaurant on Wednesday 12/8/2015. Staff were so uninterested, grumpy faces. We felt we we're inconveniencing them. Food was average. We watched two sets of people walk out due to rude staff members.

To Eyemouth from Kelso to discover if a place called Mackays really is a good fish and chip shop. Took a bit of finding, because a new shop front had just been fitted, but I can tell you that their reputation is richly deserved. Maybe I was lucky that the last piece of haddock had just been sold, but no... More
