I periodically visit Balfours for a fish supper and I must admit I enjoy the craic whilst waiting for my supper. Thankfully I have managed to get out before the boss starts to sing! The food is fresh and tasty. Would recommend to anyone who wants a laugh whilst waiting for their food!

Wonderful freshly cooked fish and chips served by very cheery staff who chatted while we waited on the fish cooking. It seems to be a very popular place as there was a long queue but it was worth the wait.
