Prices are good until you see the portions! Chips are ok, Fish is also fairly good but other foods are bland and dry. Service was lacking.

The place looks dated inside, and does not seem clean, although bizarrely it does have 5/5 from ScoresOnTheDoors. After looking for a table, and realising most had not been cleaned (or at least cleaned... More

I went to the counter and told them so... More

Disappointing - lack lustre service, overcooked, dry cod in poor batter; no wonder the restaurant only had 3 customers at 13:00 on a Friday.

Dropped in here as it was the only take away open at this time of evening, general chippy but with tables and chairs, good food and service good.

We wanted to treat our young son during his birthday outing, as he loves fish and chips, but ended up leaving before we ordered. Our son has a serious peanut allergy so, naturally, we check with management in every place we eat at. Thankfully, most places are good and comply with legal requirements by having the required documentation and being... More

Chips decent but the portions were tiny. Still hungry after finishing. Did not like the way the chef was shouting at the staff in the restaurant (who were all pleasant) He was rude, arrogant & abusive.

Always good service , nothing negative to say , all options on menu have always been available. Sit down or take out and pop over the road to the park

I asked for a large chips and was given what seems more like a small. £2.50 not well spent! Staff seem unimpressed with having to serve customers and have an attitude towards you.
