Extremely poor service. Lacking even the basics. Ghastly food. Overpriced. Suggest you starve rather than eating in Hook Line and Sinker.

Stopped at the Hook Line and Sinker chip shop in Portsoy, it’s the May Day holiday weekend, beautiful day here but sadly the food let it down. I have attached a photo of most of my ‘chips’. Disgusting!
