It won an award years ago for the best fish and chips so naturally we had to give it a go. We liked it but it wasn't great so we went back a few more times. It has gone downhill. With each of the 4 visits it got worse each time. Very greasy and dark from old oil. On the... More

First who serves fish and chips with no lemon, secondly inedible. Crumbs so think they had to burn the outside to cook the fish.

Always delicious chips. Sometimes the other items can be a little greasy and the batter is different from other shops, but we love the chips.

I LOVED this fish and chip shop, as you can see from past review, even though they are local I have not heard of them changing hands but the chips that I sooooo loved are not there any more.
