“coeliacs rejoice!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2013

the new owners have given this resturant and takeaway bar a great makeover. After discovering that they've developed a gluten free batter, my wife had proper fish and chips for the first time since being diagnosed as a coeliac, and said her fish was outstanding. great chips too, and very friendly owners.
