I was recently taken here by my parents, who have been raving about it for ages. So how good can Fish and Chips really get? This is by far the best cod I have ever been served, big fresh white flakes, the batter is their own and was light, crispy and not oily at all. Great portion size of chips... More

I used to use this restaurant when I worked away, I usually arrived after 7:30pm after working at Templecombe, which is a fair trek to go so the facility even at this time of night was filled with a mixture of sit in diners and take away customers, the menu is good and testimony to the quality is when I...

Its a large fish and chip shop with a restaurant, not as nice as Steve's fish and chips in the town centre but perfectly acceptable and clean. The staff are helpful and pleasant.

This place continues to maintain its high standards, wrinklies meal with a cup of tea and bread and butter still £6.95 each. The meal was served on hot plates, hot fish and chips cooked to perfection. Staff are young but extremely friendly and efficient.

Visited this restaurant several times, always extremely busy so book if you can. A measure of how good we think their food is, once stood and waited for 45 minutes for a table. Staff are always friendly and helpful, a really good selection on the menu, doesn't have to be fish but ignore it at your peril, definitely best fish... More

Delicious Fish and Chips. If like me you prefer your fish without batter, the chef is always happy to grill it for you. Also offer kids box perfect for the smaller appetite.
