“What a find..”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2014 via mobile

We found this chip shop by accident..
What a find..
The staff were really friendly,the place was spotless...and the food was brilliant.
The fish was as fresh as could be..the pies were succulent and the chicken curry was devine. The kids are not left out..apparently the nuggets were "well wicked". I cannot rate this place highly enough..somewhere that cares if you come back..

“Poor service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2014

Went in to the cafe part for a meal, the waitress came over, glum looking girl, small, thin and dark hair in a pony tail. We wanted pie and chips which was easy to order and a cheese and onion pasty which was not easy to order. I first asked her if they had cheese and onion pasties and the reply was 'no', that was it, nothing else just silence. So I asked what pasties they were, the reply, 'normal pasties'. I thought she'd elaborate on that but no that was it, I had to ask what a normal pasty was and was told meat and potato. While she stood there we quickly looked through the menu again and luckily we found chicken and mushroom pie on the menu so asked for that.

The food was quite nice, just normal cafe fayre. When we'd finished she came over again and just whipped the plates off the table without saying anything. One of the other waitresses, blonde haired girl seemed very friendly with the customers, the miserable one should take a look at her and ask for tips.

“Excellent service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2014 via mobile

This fish and chip shop was recommended to us and with just cause. The service was excellent, considering we were a very large group and the staff were wonderful. The staff especially the front of house lady were brilliant, happy smiling faces, great attitude and very fast service. What's more the food was great and tasted as it should do. The shop itself was very clean and a very high standard of cleanliness throughout. Well done!

Honestly this is the best fish I've had in a very long time. We had the choice to eat in and have a beer if we wanted of take out and sit on the stunning beach.
