This is the only place we go for fish & chips, definitely the best in the area. It always looks busy (at least when we go, anyway), so was very sad to see a note on the inside of the door saying it has ceased trading when we went down last night. Ahhh! :'( am now in mourning.

I've tried all the chip shops in the area to settle an argument (I'm now on the 5:2 diet to recover....) and this is the best one.
The batter is thin and crispy, (not the thick doughy kind), and you get a decent number of chips - not a mountain but enough to fill you without you feeling the need to finish them as a challenge to yourself.

It is always busy and get good reviews. I'm not a huge fish and chips fan however loved the taste here.
They are also engaged with the locals very well - good to have them around and look out for free chips cones at festival.
Outdoor seating is nice also as I don't like the heavy fish smell inside !

Great for a local takeaway service.
Plenty to choose from on the menu. Fish freshly cooked to order.
There's indoor tables as well as a little tabled pavement area to watch the world go by on a nice day.

Friendly, independent chippy that's good value and rustic seating inside if you want to eat inside rather than takeaway.
