Really odd experience here today. There was a very strange after taste that I think was the oil. We both got headaches (spooky) and felt ill all day. NEVER would return awful food and no toilets

We called after visiting at the Conquest Hospital. The seating area was very cramped and the fish portions were very small. There are so many great fish and chip businesses nearby, we would not return.

The chips at the Dolphin were fantastic; perfectly crispy and the fish was great. Nothing was too greasy and the mushy peas were spot on.

Quick lunch for hubby and I. Lovely cod and chips in this little restaurant. About 6 tables inside but turnover is pretty quick! Freshly cooked Fayre, lovely chips! Nice mug of tea and super friendly waitress! What's not to love ❤️

My Husband and I ate lunch here after staying overnight in town. It was very cold and windy and as we walked along the front, this was one chippy that wasn't seasonal and was open. The fish and chips were beautifully fresh and batter crispy,chips very chunky cut. The prices very reasonable and our lovely lunch was washed down with... More

Had a meal for 4 , 2 adults and 2 children , all had cod and chips which couldnt have been better , lovely staff with quick service . Best to eat inside on a cold day and plenty of seagulls trying to get food , worth waiting for an inside table

Visited the take away with a large group. Food cooked fresh to order. Chips really good...hot, crispy, fresh. Cod cooked to perfection. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful...couldn't do enough to give us the very best service. Highly recommend you pay them a visit soon.
