“Average chippy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013 via mobile

Nothing too fancy, the food is lovely and the service is quick, but there isn't much of an atmosphere, but the food makes up for that!

“Great Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013 via mobile

Bobbed in today for dinner. Food was great but found it a little pricey. Just over £7 for chips, sausage and gravy twice.

“Superb Fish and Chips”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

Saw this place on TV, so we just had to visit, as we were in the area. We sat inside to eat and received very friendly table-service.
The quality of the fish is excellent. The batter is so light and the fish so fresh and delicious. There was 7 of us in our party and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meal. Everything we ordered was great.
Smashing afternoon meal and all at a good price too.

“Consistent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013 via mobile

My Grandparents come here almost every week and take us anytime we are visiting from the US. The lightly battered fish is lovely and the chips are delicious! My kids love having "English fish and chips" here and the waitress ( I'm sorry I am forgetting her name at the moment) is so friendly and always is so kind to my kids!

“Just Great Fish & Chips [and mushy peas]”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

My 84 year old mum is in Rossall rehab hospital where she hates the food and is starved on a dreadful NHS starvation diet. Oh why doesn't Trip Advisor do hospitals too?
Waiting for them to open at 11:30 on December 27th, we bought fish, chips and mushy peas for her and rushed them to the hospital. She just wolfed them down, they were so good, until sister appeared and ordered her to stop eating food from outside claiming that it might cause a stomach bug outbreak. Mum refused to let go of them and wolfed more down. Eventually sister had her way, but not until mum had enjoyed some of the gorgeous food.
Really fresh and lovely flaky snow white fish. Just eat them before you get to the Rossall hospital!
