Went to visit family and stopped by for a sneaky fish and chips. Took advantage of the pollock special which was good value at £2.50 with a large fish and a handful of chips! Fresh and cooked to order.

There is a large car park next door where you can see everyone else eating the same thing (or having ice cream from the van! )

The fish in Mortons is the best I have ever tasted, the batter is light and the portions generous. I recommend the codling and the mackerel also the scallops which are seasonal. The fish is super fresh and well worth the 10 to 15 min wait.
The burgers etc are also good but dont miss out on the fish.
Staff are very friendly and efficient cant fault this place at all.
Always call in here on our way along the north coast.
Check on the opening times in the winter so your not disappointed.

Starved for food and dinner choices in Ballycastle, we were directed to Morton's. We placed two orders of chips, one order of cod and two fillets of Mackerel were placed. Everything was cooked to order, so the wait may have been about 10 minutes, not fast, not slow. The cod was just ok, nondescript. The Mackerel on the other hand was a bit greasy, yes I realize Mackerel is an oily fish, just didn't expect it to be THAT oily. With the rainy weather we, weren't able to enjoy the harbour. That along with a pint might have made the meal that much more appetizing.

Traditional fresh fish and chips made from fish caught the night before by local fishermen and from potatoes grown locally.

I do not believe you will find many better examples of fish and chips anywhere (the only better cod and chips I have had was in Iceland).

This is an excellent place located right beside the ferry for Rathlin Island. The portions are massive and you will be eating al fresco as this is takeaway only. I can't wait to go back.

Enjoy!

Great place to enjoy traditional fish and chips, all cooked fresh and to order. Pleasant and welcoming staff and we ate our dinner 'al fresco'. Great job.
