Miserly Portions, Grand Prices

Miserly Portions, Grand Prices Chips don't cost much to make, I cannot understand a business model that would drive away customers by simply being so miserly with the portions. Honestly we're talking the difference a handful makes. A large portion is too much for one person but at around... read more

Myself and my partner were there last night with my mum. The waitress was very polite and pleasant. We got our jumbo haddock (mum had standard haddock) and the jumbo haddock had a strange taste. Mum Said her standard one tasted fine. After eating nearly half of it I decided I couldn't eat any more it wasn't good, as did... More

Tried the online delivery service for the first time tonight, smoked sausage supper (I imagined the sausage to be battered but alas not) with an extra of onion rings, unfortunately I am unable to rate the food at this point as it arrived stone cold!! Maybe it'll be fine once reheated?? For a supposedly award wining restaurant I must say,... More

Sadly this chippy does not make nice chips. They never seem fresh, always stuck together and "old" looking.

Found a small stone in a veggie burger and went back to complain and got £2 back for it.

I wish to complain about your branch in Brechin. They are bringing your good name down. The chips are always white sticking together and totally horrible. Surely their oil temperature needs to be risen to get golden crisp chips like they do elsewhere . I went in tonight for white puddings and fritters. The man said he had no potatoes... More
