This fish and chip restaurant/takeaway is wonderful. You can either takeaway or go to the restaurant upstairs which is small but cosy. The views are beautiful and look right over the sea. The food is delicious, the fish is fresh and they offer endless chips!...More

Went on an evening from Poole with Mrs H. decided to use the Restaurant section for a Chippy based meal. Great food, great service and very reasonably priced. Eaten there in years before and standards have remained very high.

We visited this restaurant for lunch last week when visiting Swanage and had the best fish and chips we have had for a long time. We sat upstairs at a table overlooking the sea and the place was spotlessly clean. The service was also excellent...More

Sat upstairs in their restaurant for fish and chips. Great views of the pier and Swanage bay. Service was quick and friendly, reasonable choice of alcohol, fruit juices or hot drinks. The fish and chips where lovely and crispy. Definitely will go back.
