If you like fish, this is the place to eat. I had the grilled fish which was mouth watering, but noticed others eating the standard fish and chips with great relish. Friendly and helpful staff, too. Would have gone back again, but they were not open over Easter, so check opening times on bank holidays.

Me and my friend both had the fish (cod) and chips with mushy peas. Best fish and chips I have had in the UK. Fish was so fresh, it was wonderful! Nice relaxed ambiance and reasonable prices. Would definitely visit again!

The BEST FISH & CHIPS... More

Got seated very quickly but a lot of the seats were reserved : it was a Friday evening. Ordered two cod and chips and a portion of mushy peas. Food was served within 5 minutes and looked fantastic. It tasted the same and our waiter could not do enough for us. The table was a bit small but the food... More

Very tasty fish chips. Fresh fish can be cooked to order. A chicken kebab is my favorite. It never disappoints. I work locally to the restaurant and as a treat I go to Gigs. The prices are reasonable. The staff are friendly and the place is very clean. The portion size is another strong point. I will be back real... More
