We were looking for something to eat on a wet Saturday night in Peebles and we came across this little chip shop with a small restaurant. The mini fish tea was excellent value at £6.85 for the breaded haddock. The fish was perfect and the plate was full of chips. Great service and great value for money!

Three bags of chips, for eating at home. They were pretty good. Staff were friendly not much on the hot counter but maybe they make it up so its fresh?

Everything fresh and cooked to order. Prompt service. Good value. Fish supper rather large for my appetite; the mini meal plenty is big enough
