The batter was beautifully done and the fish was light and tasty. The chips were excellent too and the serving was ample for our needs. They served the meal with a pot of... More

Very reasonably priced especially seniors special. Fast and friendly service. Takeaways available next door and lovely square to eat them in. Cheap parking outside rear entrance. If you like fish and chips it's not... More
