“Good fish and chips.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

We had a takeaway from here. The fish was fresh and tasty, light batter. Delicious chips and good mushy peas. The only down side was the fish could have been left to rest for a little longer so it wasn't as greasy.
Fed a family of 4 with drinks for under £20

“Loads of choice, excelent service and staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012

Great specials loadsof variety of fish brought in by the owner who is a fishmonger, when advised of this we were immeadiatly filled with confidence and rightly so the fish was amazing.

I dont understand how anyone could complain about the staff we turned up 5 minutes before close and they were lovely and chatty about both the fish on offer and the famous faces which had visited the restraunt.

The chips were slightly under done but fish was perfect anyoe visiting blackpool should give it a try.

“Good Fish and Chips at lunchtime”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2012

Have been to the Cottage on many occassions, my mother lives close by. Went in for lunch with Jackie this week (17th October). The friendly waitress soon took our order and we did not have to wait long for our fish, chips and mushy peas. Everything was very good and the tartare sauce is home made and served in pots not some chemical concoction in plastic sachets.

There is a good choice of fish available, cod, haddock, hake, plaice, dover sole, sea bass , skate and halibut on our visit.

“Appalling service from front of house”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2012 via mobile

I feel compelled to write this review as a result of encountering the worst level of service at this resturaunt.
We went on 14/10/12 it was busy and there were 10 of us (4 adults,6 children). We were asked to wait and a call would be made when tables were available. When called we were met by the same member if staff who stunningly said " you can have 4 here, four there and 2 in the other room, if you don't like that then?"
We all looked at each other- another member of staff quickly came over and took us to two tables of 5.
We sat down and ordered our food. The same same front if house female then approached our table holding a chair and said
"Who has moved this chair?"
Again we could not believe what we were hearing and she repeated here self even louder.
We told her we sat in the chairs that were already there to which she replied
"That chair doesn't go there you'll have to move and change it with this one."
Again stunned, we swapped the chair?
I can only hope that others write about their experience here. If staff at my business were so rude as the female at The Cottage I'd be bankrupt within 6 months.
The food was fine and other staff good.
