“Excellent fish and chips”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

I cannot recommend Kingfisher highly enough. I usually prefer cod but their haddock is excellent, and with a cone size portion of chips, makes a very satisfying meal. I do not usually eat batter, but this is so light and crispy, I cannot resist it.
We usually take out fish and chips to Pugneys if the weather is sunny, otherwise we go down to the canal, sit and eat them in the car and then go for a stroll by the canal.
A great afternoon out

“Top Quality Fish and Chips”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

Despite this being about 14 miles away from where we live, we go here 2 or 3 times a month, sometimes eating in, sometimes take out. Always good quality Haddock and chips. We recommend it to everyone.

“Excellent Fish and Chips”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

Wonderful haddock and chips. Very fresh with light crispy Yorkshire batter. Living in Lancashire, it is a god send having this place within driving distance.

Only negative... the parking. Be careful if you park down the side.
