We went to this restaurant because we like fish and chips and it was recommended by the Peachland Visitors Center. They told us it was under new management and that the food was very good. We went on Saturday evening, April 19th, 2013, about 5:00 p.m. My husband and I both ordered the cod and fries. We go out for fish and chips quite often and this was by far the worst we have ever eaten. It was hot when it came but from the first bite all you could taste was that it had been cooked in old ransid oil. There was more batter than fish and the batter was very dark brown. The inside tasted like white fish not cod, it was not cooked through, had no flavour , and was slimy when the batter was removed. The tartar sauce was blan as well. The fries were greasy and tasteless. My husband had coffee and he said it tasted like it had been in the pot all day. We have had good British Style fish and chips before and this does not compare. The decor was rustic pub style and had a full service bar. There were only two other tables there with people at them. The waitress was prompt. We were very disappointed.

This was the first time in over twenty years of living in Canada, that I myself originally from England and family have found a place where we felt that the fish and chips were truly English style.
The Cod serving was very large, fresh tasting and cooked in a wonderful English crispy batter, served with true British style chips. Wow . We were thrilled to finally find such a place after so many years and will definately go back again. .

Food is regular pub fare. But lots of it. Try the new curry dishes if you dare. hot.hot.hot. very tasty. Burgers are great both chicken and beef. My favorite is still fish n chips.
