Love the fish and chips from here, the crispy batter is to die for. Nice wee cafe to the side where you can get a lovely sit down tea with bread and butter and a pot of tea to go with it, Quick service and nice fresh food.

We always enjoy the freshly cooked fish and chips, choice of mushy peas, beans or salad Served with fresh tea or coffee and bread and butter. I find a Mini Tea fills me! Excellent value.

Had a sit-in fish supper and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The substantial pieces of haddock were very well cooked with a light, crispy batter and the accompanying chips, peas and curry sauce were all decent. Friendly service and reasonable value. NB: when we visited, the sit in restaurant closed for business at 8 o'clock.

Never been disappointed with the quality of food served here, a small dining room, next door to the take-out, always had good, polite and efficient service on our visits to 'Jim Jack's'

Visited today for late lunch/early tea! Have visited a few times and every time food has been fabulous! Fish and chips amazingly crispy and so fresh. Good value for money. Only problem is it so needs to be bigger! Limited seating, so had to wait a bit to get a table but the wait is so worth it! Service good... More

The fish and chips are made fresh to order. You can sit in and enjoy a relaxing meal or take away. Either way the fish is great. Always loads of chip shop sauce if asked for.

The food was cooked to order and was fresh and delicious! I had the haddock with chips - highly recommend- and the chips were cooked to perfection, a crispy exterior then fluffy and creamy on the inside. Friendly staff and cheap prices, can't wait to go back, what more could you want! The reviews are of a high rating but... More
