This fish and chip shop has a restaurant attached which not only offers the favourite British fish and chips menu but also pies, burgers and sausages with a limited sweet menu. We thoroughly enjoyed Cod and Chips cooked to perfection, the fish obviously fresh and caught by line with plenty of chips. My large cod and chips at £7-60 was... More

Great fish and chips, even do days when gluten free which is excellent. Staff very helpful and went out of their way to find 2 offcut pieces of cod to batter for my young grandaughter. Highly recommend.

I am nearly always please with food but whenever I visit always say to myself wont go again because of the way the 'cook' talks to the wonderful staff. They are often spoken to rudely or with sarcasm that is unnecessary. If he kept up better with orders then staff would not have to ask simple questions. Last visit was... More

We live locally and try to support local business. Been going here for over thirty years now. It's always varied from ok to excellent in it's various forms. A few weeks back it was still excellent. But the place must be suffering from it's success because twice now in the space of two weeks we have tried and tried to... More

I'm sorry to hear this, but you are correct we do switch the phone off sometimes. It's usually only for about half hour or so we have had some very large orders going out like this weekend we had 165 fish and chips followed by another 50 odd so sometimes it's impossible to take phone orders during that perio, but...

Traveled a long way after being recommended this chip shop by a friend, we opted to sit in the restaurant which was designed simply with lovely seaside related ornaments. We had whitebait starters which were faultless followed by a garlic and a normal cod both of which were lovely especially the garlic cod which was such a welcome change to... More

We read good reviews about this Fish and Chips restaurant prior to our visit but when we tried ourselves we were quite disappointed. The ambiance was OK, but the quality was poor. We had cod. Fish was very greasy. We asked for medium portion but it was huge. The plates were too small for the portions which made it very... More

Lovely fish and chip shop where you can sit in a lovely restaurant area or take out. The fish is freshly cooked and yummy: they even do whitebait. Beware: portions are huge.I particularly liked that you can have a cup of tea and bread and butter with your fish supper. Service is really good and waiting time short. Restaurant well... More
