We recently took friends from the US here who wished to try our British 'Fish and Chips'. She's GF, McDermontt's prefer 24hr notice as the batter can set better, but they were able to accommodate us at short notice. Food and service were both exceptional. I recently tried the takeaway for the 1st time too and was impressed by the... More

Please believe the hype! There is always a queue, always, a very good sign! Service is slick and fast, the product fresh and piping hot, always cooked to order. Delicious!

If you are looking for really high standard fish and chips, then this is your place! Friendly staff, good service, clean environment, and superb food! I visit at least once a month and would never go anywhere else for my fish!

We are never disappointed with the fish & chips here. It is freshly cooked and just head and shoulders above other fish shops locally. However it is also more expensive than other shops, but so worth it. They offer a loyalty card of buy 5 and 6th is free, so reduces the price in the long term if you are... More

We visit Macdermotts whenever we are in the area and it's as good as ever. Fish is fresh and beautifully cooked, the chips are the best ever, and staff are friendly and efficient. My only gripe is their very limited menu, but this time I got the last piece of skate - it was well worth the waitress running to... More

We have eaten at the restaurant as well as buying to take hope. All fish is cooked to order and the chips also are cooked in small batches so are always fresh. It is the best fish and chips we have ever tasted, and we have been to many over the years, and the exceptionally high quality is consistent!

This place is not great anymore. Overpriced and small pieces of fish. Have found other restaurants in the area are offering better quality at cheaper prices. Such a shame it's not that good anymore.

If you enjoy good, honest fish and chips - this is the place for you. Always busy, always freshly cooked, consistently excellent. Never tasted better. Batter is crisp and light. Nothing is greasy. Staff are friendly and helpful. The restaurant has a loyalty card which is popular and gets you a free meal each time you collect enough stamps. Do... More

Had takeaway from here before but went with my eldest daughter last Sunday to eat in. As always fish was superb. As an old timer I have eaten in a lot of fish places and this is in the top 5. Restaurant has obviously been refurbished recently and is lovely. Not cheap but quality/price ratio is superb. Also operate a... More
