Fantastic food!!

There's always plenty to choose from & all at a reasonable price. Lasagne & chicken burgers especially nice. Would recommend.

Served by the most pleasant and accommodating owners. A true culinary find... More

The staff at this fish and chip shop are so welcoming and friendly. They are very involved in the community and do absolutly loads for charity. The food is outstanding lots of home made stuff from curry to pie always looking to add products to their range, and the place is spotless
