I had a take away fish and chips today costing £5.30. They were truly fabulous, and such a generous portion. Everything was cooked fresh to order, and were absolutely piping hot!! The whale of a fish was enormous, and hardly fit in the take away box, it was fresh, white, thick and flakey, with crispy batter. Nice chips too, fluffy... More

We came across this place by accident but I'm very pleased we did. I'd not hesitate to call again or recommend to anyone in the area. I had fish and chips with peas bread and butter and a cup of tea for £8.75 which for what we got was good value

The chips here are currently top notch - superb in every way. The parking is also great and the chips appear often to be made fresh. We stop as often as we can. This is one of our favourite chips shops.
