Greasy

Tried this place yesterday and although the food was ok and the portion sizes were excellent, it was really really greasy which I wasn't happy about.

Visited this cafe style restaurant by chance while travelling through Stranraer. Had something for everyone on the menu (we can be a picky bunch) and the portions where extremely generous! Lovely waitress was very helpful. Will return if ever passing through again

This has to be one of the worst chip shops we have ever tasted, the meals ended up in the bin! My throat and stomach felt instantly violated with the horrid taste and feeling of dripping grease from a bite of the battered sausage. The chips were not much better. Unless you like to feel sick for hours after your... More

Went in for a quick take away fish supper for my lunch whilst working. Was a bit disappointed by the portion sizes to say the least - half the size of the Central cafe I normally go to (closed on this day) and served by a guy with dirty hands. But then I was glad of the small sizes, chips... More

We visited this cafe at lunchtime on Monday and ordered the fish & chips. They were awful. The fish wasn't very fresh and was full of bones and the handful of chips were greasy and cold. Definitely not a good experience and won't be going back.
