Had a lovely meal here with family. The staff were great and the food lovely. The local ipa bitter from a small local brewery was not good however and I am an avid ipa drinker. This was a very minor detail as the rest was spot on.

Have been to this establishment on a number of occasion over the years and it never disappoints. Food is standard typical holiday resort fish chips mushy peas etc always served fresh from the fryer. Staff very friendly and efficient. Don't expect a fancy dining experience but it is adequate for a lunch in a holiday resort. Great place to eat... More

Best fish and chips in Southport- great to take away, and can eat in - a bit basic but great value at 7.99 for cod, chips, peas with bread & butter and a pot of tea. Big portions as well.

Served very hot which is a nice change from some restaurants. Quality was also good. Fish and chips, with tea or coffee, soft drinks or bottled water and bread and butter. £8. Great... More
