To use current educational parlance the Premier Cafe is Good but not Outstanding. The fish is fresh and freshly cooked, the batter is reasonably tasty (which you can't always say) and the chips are well-cooked and fairly crispy - which again you can't always say. So why is it not Outstanding? Simple, because the best fish and chips are cooked in beef dripping - sorry vegetarians, but it's true. Why else does Rick Stein's expensive chippy on Padstow quay cook in it? Palm oil or any other frying medium automatically rules out five-stars, I reckon.
But don't get me wrong, for the south of England the Premier is definitely a cut above the average.
