There are a variety of selections, including fish and chips, pies, burgers, and hotdogs. Despite good reviews, the experience was a bit disappointing. The haddock was not very fresh and a bit over fried. The taste in general was just average by the UK standard.

We stopped in for lunch and enjoyed it very much. The quaint street side tables with a view of the Bristol Cathedral was a plus. Terrific food, great value, pleasant staff made this an easy to recommend spot.
