Ordered the full English breakfast and even though it was above normal prices it was excellent quality, very full and best of all it was hot. Clean and welcoming. Highly recommend.

I came in here to meet a friend and decided to have coffee and fish and chips. The coffee was strong and quite nice and the fish and chips were brilliant. The chips were fresh and excellent a d the fish was some of the best I've had in a really long time. Excellent place.

We enjoyed a lovely lunch here, food was freshly cooked and plenty of it. Our girls ate fussy eaters but both enjoyed their meals, pot of tea for 2 have 3 cups each which was great. Would visit again when down that way 😊.

We had lunch here and the fish & chips were excellent. Fresh cod and chips and a pot of tea. The gluten free batter was the best crispy batter I've ever had. The service was really friendly too

On a very wet lunchtime we where looking for somewhere to eat that was dog friendly and my mum spotted that fat fish allowed dogs. We where met by a friendly hello from the young lady behind the counter and she gave us all menus. My parents and husband had the cod and chips, our daughter had a chicken burger... More
