This place is a little gem. The fish is absolutely superb and plentiful. Service good and staff very friendly. They also do a takeaway menu which is extremely good and not expensive at all. Another place that is definitely a go back to one.

Spotless restaurant. Very friendly staff. Fish was very moist, nice light batter not at all greasy, served with home cut fries. Would definitely recommend.

Fish and Chip establishment with a good choice. Busy when we arrived. Offered some fish for free while we waited for our order to arrive. I found the chips a little hard and some were overdone.

I've been here a number of times and overall, it's been kind of average. Not the best, not the worst. Forget decor, it's just a plain straight-ahead family type restaurant. Service was good, but I'm having trouble finding the value for what we've paid lately....More
