“Amazing Choice of Different Batter's & Breadcrumbs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2014

We had never been into a chippy that offered so many different choices as to how your fish is cooked for you. I had king size cod in occur? breadcrumbs whilst my wife enjoyed haddock cooked in a light batter. My fish was huge, freshly cooked and simple delicious, my wife's haddock was also of a generous size and delivered in a crispy light batter that looked wonderful. The chips were also crispy and again there was a generous portion on both plated. This establishment does not have an alcohol licence but you are encouraged to bring your own and they are more than happy to provide glasses for you to use. If you forget, there is an off licence just a couple shops away. Go, you will not be disappointed!

“All round good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

We often pop into this place on our way home from Bournemouth as the food is always good.
They cater for Coeliacs which is a bonus as my wife is gluten free.
the staff are always helpful and the restaurant is clean and welcoming.
Regards. Nelson

“Amazing restaurant/cafe, off the beaten track”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

This place is a gem. Try the special, three pieces of fish grilled, truly wonderful. Don't be fooled by it's location. This is a great place for a family meal. Inexpensive, good selection and tasty to boot.
I think it only seats 26 and it fills up fast, so do book if you can.

It's part of the chip shop so if you want a great take away this is the place to come.
