take away or sit in.fish and chips for around 9 pounds in restaurant area.fish was large and cooked well and tasted good the chips were a little pale looking but were cooked properly and also had a good taste.so I guess that's because the oil they were cooked in was clean so thumbs up for that.my wife had an ommlette with plenty of ham in it which was good also.friendly staff so worth a visit.

Had our lunch here today. Gorgeous fish and chips lovely lady served us. Would go again . She split it in half and wrapped it separately so I could have salt and vinegar and my husband just salt. Very thoughtful .

Advertised as a fish and steak restaurant but it is a chippy with a few extras on the menu. Chips needed cooking more, fish ok, kids pizza and burger naff. Probably nicer places to eat.

Upon arrival was spoken too by a welsh lady who snapped at us !. We purchased 2 portions of chips to take away. The chips were very disappointing as they had clearly been cooked then recooked. They were very rubbery and chewy to which they ended up in the bin!! Wouldn’t recommend this chippy!

Popped in for tea and teacakes whilst we waited for friends. Very tasty, and such helpful staff.
I came back later to see if I could get a wrap, as I can't eat bread. Whilst they didn't sell them, the young man went to the back of the shop to see if there were any he could custom make for me. I thought that was a lovely gesture, and great customer service.
