Good fish and chips in town centre, can get busy. It has a couple of stools and a bar by the window, although near the castle an next to the water there´s a great spot to eat your fish and chips.

Probably the best fish and chips I've ever had, so good we went twice during our stay. Children's portions were very generous as we're the adults. Queue on the Friday night was long but we'll worth the wait and staff did all they could to serve as soon as they could. Lovely food at reasonable prices.

Thank dawnlmckee
