This is such an amazing chippy. The chips are super and the portions are massive. Their menu is extensive and has a good selection for vegetarians. Also has its own parking which makes it super convenient.

We've just come back from a 2 week tour of Ireland. Tried local fish and chips when we could........not a patch on Mack's! We even had "posh" fish and chips in Solihull, at Loch Fyne......nah!
