Lovely fresh fish and chips cooked by "Flea" and served by the gobby one (front of shop) ha! The BREADCAKE was very enjoyable also. Altogether a very good experience for food and friendly banter. Will be calling again.

Never been let down here. Never used the cafe space - although it is smart for what it is. Have always had takeaway as reasonably close to home. Inexpensive but always very good and staff are, mostly, friendly and helpful. Would recommend this to anyone....More

I had some lovely fish and chips from here this week. Tasty and hot. Well cooked, Unfortunately the service, whilst efficient, was akin to a vending machine! No "Hello". No please or thank you. I may as well have put my money into a machine...More

The chips were good and not overly greasy, albeit a little 'floppy', the mushy peas were runny but a good flavour. However, I received one 'scoop' of chips that was very small and didn't fill the box at all. The worst part was the service...More

Use regularly but have on occasions not been the best. So have gone elsewhere sometimes. But the last 3 weeks the fish is noticeably better quality so am guessing changed supplier. Maybe will get jumbo fish now? It is advertised but never available. Can make...More

Started off with battered squid to share followed by haddock chips and mushy peas, we do this ourselves at home quite often and are usually disappointed when eating this dish away from home but not this time, everything was very good. This establishment is also...More
