Wow what a find! Crispy batter on moist fish, and chips that were crispy outside and fluffy inside. Mandy does a fantastic job cooking, and maintains conversation with the many locals she knows. She acknowledges new customers and you're made to feel very welcome. Great place and I'll definitely be back.

We have been told by lots of different friends that this is the best chippy in the district so we decided to try it. We decided to order 2 large fish suppers, this was a mistake!!!! The portions are enormous, we both had 2 beautifully cooked haddock fillets and a mountain of chips, the staff are lovely if not just... More

I periodically visit Balfours for a fish supper and I must admit I enjoy the craic whilst waiting for my supper. Thankfully I have managed to get out before the boss starts to sing! The food is fresh and tasty. Would recommend to anyone who wants a laugh whilst waiting for their food!

When I arrived I was immediately made welcome by the two ladies who seem to run the shop - they appear to know most of... More
