Whether you chose takeaway or to eat in, you will always receive the best customer service. Most importantly the food is great with good size portions.

Be prepared to wait for a table as this is a very popular fish restaurant. There is little else on the menu but the fish is well cooked and generous, served with chips or salad.

The best fish shop around. Friendly staff. You can have a drink they have a good bar there. Wouldn't go anywhere else. Also do takeaways.

McDermotts fish and chip shop is so good, when we eat fish and chips anywhere else we are always comparing them unfavourably with McDermotts. They have won Fish and Chip shop of the year both regionally and nationally. There's always a queue, but the fish is cooked to order so its worth the short wait. Both the takeaway and the... More

You can tell by the size of the queue on a Friday night that it's well worth the wait as well as a traditional fish and chip shop there is also quaint little restaurant attached to it. Serving all types of fish rock, cod, haddock, sole etc.

Started visiting this place again recently as the more local chip shop's quality had become patchy. This place is a stalwart with consistent good quality fish and chips. Fish is good quality and skinless, although only one size and maybe a tad small for some. There is often a queue on Fridays but the ordering and service is extremely well... More

We went for a takeaway. On arrival there was a long queue. This was, however, not an issue as the staff and service were efficient, with only about 10 minutes between ordering at the door and us receiving 6 portions of piping hot fish and chips. The fish itself was fresh and well done with a good portion of tasty... More
