Had the best fish ever. Was fresh and very crispy. Pitty about the miserable staff and waiting time was rather long even though they were overstaffed. Was well worth the wait though:)

We sat upstairs in the fresh new dining area - warm and cosy on a cold bleak evening. Didn't look beyond haddock & chips - fish was sparkling fresh and chips crispy and plentiful . Louise the waitress was charming and value for money couldn't be questioned . A great find .
