“Fantastic chips, fresh fish but can be oily and slightly pricey..”
Reviewed December 13, 2013

Ive been here several times, as I'm local, and the first time was rubbish, but I think it's changed owners and now it's leaps and bounds from what it was. Chips are great, always crunchy but fluffy and fish is fresh and tasty, but as mentioned by others, can be a little oily at times. But it must be alright if I keep going back. Another bad point would be inconsistencies in staff friendliness. But everyone has their good and bad days. 8/10 as an overall.

“Nice food let down by poor customer service”
Reviewed December 9, 2013 via mobile

Nice fish & chips, potato cakes a little greasy. Staff were bored and unfriendly which let the place down. Takeaway menu a lot cheaper than eating in.

“Yummy!”
Reviewed November 15, 2013 via mobile

Visited one lunchtime and chose to dine in (take away is also available). There is a good selection of seafood and fish on the menu. I opted for the prawns which came with chips and salad and were delicious. The staff were very friendly and the food arrived quickly. Highly recommended.

“FAST FOOD”
Reviewed November 2, 2013

Good fast food outlet/Service was great. Chips were nice and crunchy but fish had too much oil retained in the batter.
