I have eaten in the restaurant previously which was good but Saturday I visited the take away part for a portion of chips. When they came out at first I thought they were undercooked. I was wrong! They were cooked perfectly. Slightly crispy outside and soft and creamy inside. Not the biggest portion but for what you do get they're lovely.

The Fish Pan has been established for many years; and I have frequented it occasionally for something like two decades. It's not the cheapest fish and chips takeaway on the South Bay, but it is the best in my opinion (there are one or two better options in town / the suburbs). The food is always plentiful and fresh. There is also the option to eat in their upstairs cafe, but I cannot comment on this facility as I have only bought food to take out.

We ordered 2 portions of the fish & chips special which included mushy peas, bread and a drink :) Lovely crispy batter, hot fresh fish, perfect chips, :)

The service was great and the sea view was amazing, no wonder people come here for an eat in meal.

You think fish and chips is just fish and chips. But at Fish Pan it is our idea of seaside heaven. Great service, tasty food, lovely views :)
