We bought some nice and reasonably priced fish and chips for takeaway to eat watching the boats going up and down the river. Generous portions and not oily or greasy. Very busy - everything cooked to order.

Incredible fish and chips. Generous serves, the fish (often local) is beautifully cooked and the chips are fantastic. Well worth the detour from the highway.

Food has become terrible of late, maybe a new owner? Having to wait quite a while after ordering. Now go to Mumms, great takeaway and good value for money.

They had a good range of fresh seafood and good prices. The location by the river is beautiful with indoor seating and benches along the river.

I've been here a few times and it's great. Their food is fresh and their burgers are really good - I always feels slightly nostalgic eating their food, it reminds me of my childhood. Their potato scallops are also worth a try

Best fish and chip I ever had! Bit pricey, and small in quantity. But well worth it. Located at a peaceful and beautiful riverside area, shop is clean and tidy. Highly recommended!

Brilliant ; absolutely first class. We just needed a good old fashioned 'eat out' by the waterfront and this was, without a doubt, the best I've ever had, including Rick Steins, in England. Sitting out under some shade, watching the boats, we all agreed this was the best.

Best fish and chips shop in the area. Freshly cook extensive menu. Very busy but reasonably fast not too long to wait. Great value for money. We have eaten here many times. Great location on water so you can get takeaway and sit on grass or picnic tables on the water. Kids loved it too.

Bought the family fish chips and potato scollops. Very lean on the chips. The scollops were burnt on the outside and tasted terrible. Obviously put in batter frozen. No return visit for us.
