I cannot fault this place at all. Regularly go for the excellent range in food, great service and reasonable prices. Tried many different establishments in the past but this is by far the best.

When I lived nearby, this was my favourite fish and chip place in the area. Sadly no more, whilst the food was reasonable and the staff friendly, the portion sizes were absolutely woeful not only for the money, but in pretty much any sort of like for like comparison I can only assume that it has recently changed hands again...

This is one of our locals and the food is great. Had fish and chips on first visit. Second visit had chow mein, then tonight, I had chicken fried rice. Every time I've been, the food has been great and the staff also very friendly.

I didn't have great expectations of this fish and chip shop as it looks to be trying too hard to be all of the takeaways in one go, with fish and chips, kebabs and Chinese menus up on the walls. Still, we ordered some haddock and chips, with gravy and curry sauce - and I am really glad that we... More

Was looking forward to a fish and chip meal tonight. Paid £11.50 for two fish two mushy peas and one chips. The fish was virtually inedible. It was bone dry and very tough. It has clearly been reheated from lunch time or even the night before. Don't get a meal from this place early evening.

I think it's a bit pricey regarding the size. i had it immediately in front of the shop, so it's crispy but there were quite a... More

This was our local chippy, but sadly no longer... Chips were always good, and portion wise too, staff always friendly, but those last two fish (Haddock, they don't sell Cod) we had were so bad I couldn't eat them. Flat, white/grey in colour and as soon as I disturbed the surface with my fork it crumbled into very small pieces,... More

Cannot beat the local chippy. They serve great good at good prices. Parking isn't bad unless you have people there who can't park. Would recommend.
