“Visited for the fish and chips - what a let down”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

Visited due to it's reputation for fish and chips. My cousin who lives an hour away had been told by friends that it was worth the hours drive. Quite simply it was not.

Fish and chips served were dry and overcooked, no moisture left in fish. Batter was bland and insipid, not crunchy at all.

Despite being told that eldest son was a vegetarian and that he wanted peppers and extra cheese on his pizza, he ended up with peperoni and extra cheese. Waitress stated it was her fault writing "pep" on her order pad which was misinterpreted by the kitchen. We were offered the pepperoni pizza free while my son's pizza was re-made. But he still ended up getting his pizza after 5 of us had finished and felt rushed as a result.

Very disappointing experience.

“Best Fish and Chips!”
Reviewed October 1, 2010

Have visited the Silver King in Blacks several times when in the area on business - their fish and chips are consistently awesome and you are not hungry when you leave, that's for sure.
