A visit to the seaside is not complete without fish and chips and the Swan did not disappoint. Well cooked food and good service at a reasonable price.

We have visited 'The Swan' fish and chip takeaway on a number of occasions, and have found the quality of the food and the friendliness of the staff to be consistently excellent. We have finally found our favourite fish & chip shop in Southport, having lived in the area for 5 years!! Many Thanks!!
