“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

Very disappointed with quality of fish and chips. Had to remove lots of "green" chips from each portion; they weren't very hot and some were very overcooked. Fish looked appetising but tasted dry, old and greasy. Baked beans were OK. Absolutely huge portions - all of us left at least half. Staff serving were not wearing overalls/aprons and clothes were covered in grease - I know this is to be expected in a fish and chip shop but clean (work) clothes should be worn for each shift. Very large menu - at least 3 different types of fish plus scampi and calamari - shame we won't be going back to try any more ...

“Not great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

Queued for over half an hour while the chap serving chatted up ladies he was serving. Chips were a bit burned and not awfully hot. Will look for another fish and chip shop newt time I'm in Weymouth.
