By far the best fish and chips money can by at a decent price. generally a queue to get served but this goes down quickly and its well worth the wait.

Popped in here for a takeaway on a Saturday lunchtime. It was very busy and we had a short wait in the queue. Once we got served, the food was well presented in a quality takeaway container separating the chips from the fish. We had two lots of fish bites and chips and a "half and half" which consisted of chips, cod and 5 battered languostines. The batter was lovely and crisp and the chips very tasty and no sign of grease.
Excellent food, excellent value.

Called in with my wife and son bought fish and chips two sausages and some fish bites & curry almost £15. Food was nice and agree with some other reviews that chips were a little bit scrappy (lots of small hard fragments of chips). Would have given it more stars had it been better value. Service is slow but it's cooked to order and some confusion as to where the que was some waiting to be seated others taking out.

We called in after beachcombing, for lunch.
The staff were great and set up a table in the busy cafe.
Quite compact feeling when its busy, but busy means its popular for a reason!
Ordered fish and chips and a sticky toffee pudding with ice cream, plus tea.

It was great and came pretty quick too.

Good place for a quick fish meal. The menu had quite a wide range including mussels, goujons, and langoustine aswell as the expected.

Would definitely return.
