Since we had taken our dog with us, for a day trip to the coast, the places we could eat were a little restricted. We decided to visit the cafe, which has a take-away section for fish & chips, with an outside seating area. The fish shop was busy, which suggested to us that it must be worthy of a visit.
When we got our order, the only positive thing I could say about it was the breadcake my son had (for his chip butty) was ok. The rest of the 'offerings' were disgusting!
I order fish & breadcake - the fish came in the palest batter I'd ever seen & was undercooked (it wasn't fresh, either). The bit I had tasted as if it had been cooked in old oil (I'm retching even now at the thought!)
My husband chose pie & peas - I've never seen a pie coloured grey! He ate about half but gave up as most of the contents was slop!
The staff had no customer service whatsoever, they even charged a customer 5p when he asked for an extra tray - he'd spent nearly £20 on his order!
The positive I can give on this review is - my dog seemed to enjoy the fish & grey pie slop, but then again she hasn't eaten horse droppings in her time!
