nice setting, large portion of chips, but the cost of £13.50 for rock is well over priced for a small potion of fish

We called into Papa's Barn in Maidstone on Easter Saturday, excellent service and fish and chips. The food was cooked to perfection and the service was superb.

Good food as always and service is also very good. Prices are reasonable. I can never resist the fish and chips but they also have a blackboard with specials which are also really good. You cannot go wrong here.
