“Food quality 10/10 staff 10/10 but please change oil more often”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

Great place , & Decent people , nice smiles & welcome ... Shame to have this spoiled a bit by the taste of being fried in an older oil that did need changing . But please still go there as the owner
cares so will address this when he reads it .
I wish them the best of luck & will still go myself when I'm working in the area.
The only reason Smithsons fish & chip along the road is the only busy one in the area is because they change the cooking oil more often BUT this Tomlins place would be a cut above the competition with the old oil taste rectified . Please note I still give this place top marks !
