“Sensational seafood”
Reviewed June 14, 2013 via mobile

Scales is always busy - what better indicator of how good a place is there? Their cooked seafood is always fresh and tasty. They also have a small, but high quality selection of fresh seafood to either take home or get cooked on the premises. There is limited seating outside, but across the road are some lovely grassy areas overlooking the Tweed River. If you like seafood this is the best place in the area.

“Best fish and chips on the Tweed”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

You can choose your own fresh piece of fish and have it cooked, rather than getting pot luck. Their calamari is always lovely and fresh too. It's a good sign that the shop is always busy - definitely the best fish and chips in the area. Take a picnic rug and enjoy your lunch or early dinner overlooking the river in the park opposite.
