Having read previous reviews I made sure I was at the door at 5pm and even then there were a dozen people in front of me but I didn't have to wait long for my delicious portion of cod and chips. Beautiful crispy batter and well cooked chips eaten on the front overlooking the beach - perfect.

A very good fish & chip shop, be prepared for queues though, as this one has a good reputation, & sometimes there is even a line of people waiting before it opens. Nice friendly staff.

Very helpful guy behind the counter when asked about the mini fish and if enough for kids with a big appetite. He indicated he'd put a nice sized one in for us. Second time we've been to this chippy and it is worth the visit. Speaks volumes that people queue out the door for this place. Always a bonus when... More

Gorgeous fish and chips. Make sure you arrive early as it gets very busy here, as it is one of the only fish and chip shops nearby.
