Service ok, depends who you get. Food is fine just expensive for what it is. Drinks expensive too. Would we go again?..... Yes if I am feeling flush!

The fish and chips were nice and reasonably priced, deals for seniors which included tea and dessert, and children under 12 free with full priced adult. The staff were pleasant and efficient. It was busy, obviously very popular there were a lot of people there which brings me to why this is a 4 not a 5. The restaurant is... More

Clean, well maintained, helpful friendly staff, parking a bit cramped but managed to get a space...(don't park on the double yellows at the front of the premises, we saw the police twice during our visit!) Attentive staff. Food was delicious, hot and well presented it's not cheap but is worth the money, as a treat every once in a while.

The fish is always really fresh in a lovely crispy batter and the restaurant has been refurbished recently. Alternatively you can take your fish and chips away to eat.

In my opinion the kingfisher has gone downhill. Used to love fish from here. Not sure what has changed over the last year but definately no where near as good. Tried them on and off over the last couple of months as thought maybe it was just a bad few days. Stated to go to the wetherby Waler now, shame... More

Called on my way home. There was quite a queue and it was Tuesday teatime. Bought fish chips and mushy peas and sausage and curry sauce. Couldn't fault anything. Thoroughly enjoyed all.

Fabulous fish and chips eaten indoors or as takeaway. Always reliable. Staff are efficient. Pensioner specials available. Seating area and parking is limited due to popularity of this place. Possible to,park on roadside and few spaces behind establishment.

Have only had takeaway here so can't comment on the restaurant but the food is delicious. Chips are nice and tasty and not too greasy. Same goes for the fish batter, it doesn't leave that nasty grease on the paper. Had a few take outs from here and it's been consistently good. You may pay a little more than other... More
