Haven't been in this chip shop for years but was a little disappointed with our recent visit. It tasted OK but was very greasy and left that furry, nasty feeling on the roof of your mouth. The food repeated on me all afternoon. Wish I hadn't bothered!

After visiting this fish shop for over 15 years, my recent visits have been very off putting. On my last visit the food was cold and dried out, as if it had been sat under the heaters for hours, i was bitterly disappointed, after spending over £20 on tea for 3 people, i felt as though i had wasted money,...

Tried this place on the recommendation of friends. We usually go to the whaler but decided to give this a try. The opening time is advertised as 11.30 so we went for this time as parking is an issue here. Unfortunately there was no sign of life and we and other customers were waiting outside until 11.45. We ordered 2... More

I've been going here for almost forty years, even when it was 'Franks'. I can probably only count on one hand, the number of times the food in or takeaway hasn't been up to scratch. Again, this evening we had good fish and chips and VFM. The staff, as tonight are ok,'it's a job' mood. Car parking can be poor,... More

We called into the restaurant on a Wednesday evening. The fish & chips are excellent quality and so is the service. There were plenty of family groups enjoying their meals.

We have been to this restaurant many times over the years and love it! The tables are always set up with cutlery, cups and saucers and condiments. Always clean and cleared as soon as they are vacated. The menu caters for all appetites and tastes. There is no long wait for the food and it is freshly cooked and served... More

I've enjoyed takeaway fish and chips many times from Kingfisher, however for a change we decided to try the restaurant out. We all agreed that the haddock and chips were excellent, portion sizes were just right and everything was cooked to perfection. I can't fault the staff, they were friendly and helpful. Just note that there is limited car parking... More
