Another fab night with great food from an old favourite. Had my usual haddock and chips which was amazing. Tried the fritters for the first time - memories of a childhood when all I could afford was "a fritter please" with my pocket money. Highly recommended.

Frequented this eaterie quite a few times and the last couple of visits I noticed a distinct lack of quality and taste. Firstly the haggis starter at almost a fiver gives only two small pieces of haggis and the plate loaded with lettuce and enough dipping sauce for ten pieces. I also was perplexed at the size of the cod... More

If you did not know what was on offer here and you were on a first date, your companion may well be doubting your sincerity. The approach to the Chippy does not look that enticing but do not let that fool you. Never judge a book by it's cover as the inside of the Chippy will testify. Clean brick walls,... More

Food was good, staff could be nicer, not very accommodating, but enjoyed the food, rather small restaurant, not good for prays and babies.

Had to search this place out. Even with google maps it was a bit of a challenge but worth it. Had the fish and chips and I have to say the homemade tartar sauce made it outstanding. Great prices and very friendly staff.

All the awesomeness of having a good quality chippy but in a restaurant setting. Food was fantastic, well presented and tasty! and service was quick and friendly. The place could be easily missed if you were not starving and actually looking for somewhere to eat. Once you've discovered it though, you'll definitely be back! well worth a visit and well... More

The "5PM VOUCHER DEAL" is definitely NOT A DEAL HERE! We gave this chippy restaurant a second try after a box of chips and very mediocre piece of fish! Let's not kid the punters on here...you think you're buying a deal with the voucher but all you're getting is what you paid for! That...and take note management IS NO DEAL... More

Not the best entrance / stairs to a restaurant. Dirty, dark and uninviting. However the staff have great warmth and welcome you with a big smile. The food is great. We opted for the early bird couples special - fish supper with a glass of wine. £9 each. Fish (cod) cooled to perfection and the chips were amazing. Wine was... More
