After a 10 hour drive to Gairloch, a fish and chip supper was just what was needed - unfortunately, this was not to be it.
We went in at around 6.30, and found a long queue, with about 20 people ahead of us. We eventually ordered our 2 fish suppers, and then had a very long wait again until it was ready, eventually getting it some 35 minutes later.
Poor would be an understatement - the batter was more like armour plating, and the chips were small, and anaemic looking. The fish, once you'd smashed through the batter to find it, was OK though.
Now I'm not usually a man to throw food away, but I managed most of the fish, some of the chips, but almost none of the batter...the gulls had the rest.
Undoubtedly the worst meal we had during our week at Gairloch, and not a chippy I'll be visiting again I'm afraid :-(
I do hope this was a one-off, and others may have a different tale to tell...
