I can't believe it's not Buddha

Why would anyone review a chip shop? Well, not wanting to be out done, so will I...but surely they're all the same! clearly not. For a start, this one doesn't open all the year round (or even all day round!) and as soon as it does open, a humongous queue will appear seemingly from nowhere! So... read more

Having eaten here a number of times, the food has been excellent on each occasion. Other than on one visit, we have always eaten in, at the restaurant accessed up a few steps at the rear of the shop. It usually takes a little while to be served as the food is cooked fresh, but it is always worth the... More

I was on a mission to try here because I love fish and chips and this has great reviews. I queued for over, 10 mins to be served. There wasn't a big queue ahead of me, they were just slow in serving and getting the food out. The fish was ok and the chips were average. Maybe I was just... More

Lovely Fish and chips, if your prepared to wait in a very long queue, it only opens for 3 hours in evening and the queue's are terribly long, and it seems very disorganised serving wise, but as stated worth the wait.

Called in on Thursday for haddock and three cod (with chips and peas of course), then we ate facing the sea- a lovely end to the day. The food is always fresh, always well-cooked and the service was great- even asking whether we wanted the peas on the tray or in a tub. There's a reason the shop is always... More
