It's pretty small but they work it well. It's always fast, very filling and very tasty. It's not fine food but it's homely and pretty good for the price. I've never had a problem and I've going for years.

I've had the cod from here twice and it was excellent, cooked to order with a light batter. The colour of the peas put me off a bit as there's far too much colouring for my taste but they tasted fine. I've also had a very nice steak dinner from here.

Great chippy food, which is freshly cooked and fabulous service from all the staff, who are always very friendly. Excellent value too.

Didn't feel welcome as was on my own taking up a table which staff made quite obvious they would rather be full, left half my lunch and left, thought it was expensive compared to one few doors down, quality wasn't the best and chips sadly not for me, I will not return.

Les's chip bar is a chip shop with a cafe attached. It is a basic working mans cafe with no airs and graces but the quality and freshness of the food is second to none. I challenge anyone to find better!!!

Eat in at les's service is ok but staff could be a bit more happier. Sometimes you are asked to sit with other people that you don't know as the restaurant is small and at peak times it is exceptionally busy. Service is fast but feel sometimes under pressure to leave quicker because of the queues of people waiting for... More

Went with the wife to be and had a cracking meal. I had the chicken with chips and gravy in the cafe part. Staff very attentive and friendly. Food for a chippy was very high standard. Yes it's a bit more expensive but well well worth it

Really quick service. Had a fish dinner, not greasy one bit. Sat in and it got jam packed in no time. Oddly, it was my first visit to the chippy, will be going there more often, well done gang, keep up te good work! Oooo and they do proper soak peas, yay!
