The food here is great! It's fish and chips and we've had takeaway from here many times and really enjoyed it. This weekend though we were in town and needed somewhere to eat quickly on a Sunday afternoon. Food still great. However portions looked much smaller on a plate and it felt over priced. The service was a bit sloppy... More

Got home to find they were all very small sizes much smaller than a standard size in our local chip shop but the thing which really annoyed me was the fact there was loads of black/bruised chips and the chips in general where extremely dry. We... More

We hadn't to the seafarer for a sit-in fish supper for quite a few years & I was really looking forward to it. Last time everything was perfectly cooked. This time the batter on the fish was soggy & greasy, not shaken enough before plating & the chips somehow were floury & bland. Maybe that's the potato at this time... More
