Every time I eat here I come away feeling complete. Everything about it is so good. The waiting staff, the cafe at rear of chip shop, the fish is delicious, chips good too. Served promptly

Very disappointed in not only the wait we had but also advertising vegetable burgers, but everything is cooked in beef dripping. So beware vegetarians. Very overpriced also. Won’t be back

We turned up without a reservation, so we wandered around town for a bit and they gave us a phone call when ready. Great service and food. Would highly recommend the Fish Tea. Kid's Menus great too. Hope to be back again.

This establishment is grossly overrated, it is overpriced and certainly not value for money and certainly wouldn't return.

Sadly not. For takeaway fish and chips in St Andrews I would recommend TAILEND, who deliver via Deliveroo, and whose fish and chips are nearly as good (if not quite).

Is it for takeaway or restaurant? Our restaurant only sits 26.
