“Lovely food....some poor staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2014

I go to Beales alot, I absolutely love their fish and chips. But I went the other night and gosh one of their staff could do with some people skills what an attitude. Like everything was an effort. When she was serving one customer she just kept rolling her eyes and was just generally rude. she's served me before and was the same. When my fish was ready she boxed it and served and plonked it on the counter forgetting the rest of my order and huffed when I asked. Didn't even get a thank you or enjoy.

“Nicest fish shop ever' ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2014 via mobile

Nicest ever,defo worth a try!!
The chips are lush and the staff are friendly and helpful. You've got to go there! Either eat in or take away. Although not much rooms for customers with prams!

“Fantastic fish and chips!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2014

Great service in both the take away and restaurant section.
We went the to restaurant section first and were served by a friendly and helpful waitress who couldn't have done more for us and our hungry toddler.
Great portion sizes (even the child's meal was massive), really tasty food and super value.
We returned on a busy Saturday lunchtime and had take away which we ate in the lovely park opposite, again great service, great value and super portions. They had brilliant curry sauce too!
