Quite expensive to be honest - that's why it's 4 stars not 5 - but really great fish and chips so worth it for a treat.

Hadn't been here for a year or so and sadly wasn't as good as our previous visit. Although a good portion the batter on the fish was too thick so wasn't crispy neither were the chips.

Difficult to park nearby, had to drive round the one-way system and then park quite far away. Decent sized portions but chips were soggy. Wish we'd gone to Totties instead.

Our fish, battered sausage and chips were cooked to order. The fish was white and flakey, the batter was crisp and not too thick. The curry sauce was good too. Generous portions and prices as we would normally pay. Staff were friendly. Car parking could be an issue at busy times but there is a car park nearby.

Quick service, a good turnover ensures everything is fresh. Stayed nearby and had a great takeaway on two nights

Always busy, worth phoning to pre order your food but it's always worth it. I'm sure it's all cooked to order and is lovely and fresh.

This fish and chip shop produce lovely fish and chips but they are not over generous with their portions and very limited with opening times.
