A good fish and chip shop. We ate in and the fish was in lovely light batter, the chips were nice and not greasy. Good value and the takeaway was very busy with locals which is a good sign.

We found this place by chance on a recent holiday, and its possibly the best fish and chips I've tasted. Yes, you may have to wait a short time, but when its cooked fresh for you that's not a problem. Lovely thin batter on the fish which in my case was a meaty piece of Cod, the Chips are nice and light, and with a carton of Mushy Peas and Curry it went down a treat. Very well priced and highly recommended. Did it all again on the last night too!!!!.

My wife and I went to the Pirates Rest on Sat 4th Jan 2014, I had Fish & Chips and my wife had Sausage & Chips. We both really enjoyed our food, I especially enjoyed the Cod, it is the first time I have had fish cooked to order. My wife is not to keen on fish, it looked that nice she actually tried a piece and enjoyed it. We would highly recommend the Pirates Rest to any of the locals and day trippers to this fish and chip shop.

Highly recommend this if you like fish and chips. Freshly cooked to order. Nice light batter and proper decent chips. What's not to like?
