How long does it take to make some fish and chips ...... This place took an absolute age, infact I thought they had forgotten about me and after all that ... bog standard average ... oh well, you live and learn.

Just love John Dory's, consistently nice fish and chips, you might have to wait a while, but its worth it, however if you plan and ring your order in it is much quicker, but having to wait and get good fish and chips is better than getting your order quick and not nice.

The chap serving was quite ignorant the chicken curry meal I got was well below the John dorys standard we come to expect the chips were refried leaving them hard to chew there was 7 small pieces of chicken that were cold and overall it was smaller than a kids meal as it just only filled less than half the...

I bought a cod at about 12.15pm yesterday price £4.10. this was 15p dearer than the last visit,not a problem as prices do go up. When I opened the bag the batter looked different than normal and when I cut the fish it was rubbery and not the usual white flakey tender flesh. It looked like it was a refry... More

I will stick to Rumbles... which is a pain, parking wise.. but far superior when it comes to food... Staff are mostly friendly... except for on heavyset girl who wasn't all that nice upon one visit... Baked potatoes were tiny and overdone.. chips were dripping in grease... such a pity as parking is so easy outside ....

I stopped here for Cod suppers as I had a voucher for 2 for 1. After tasting it I was very doubtful it actually was Cod. The chip shop seemed clean but was very busy and getting back out on to the busy main road is like playing Russian roulette. Bad location next to a petrol station.
