The food was freshly cooked and delicious. The staff were pleasant and helpful. I had the double fishcakes and chips and there was loads. My partner had cod and chips and they were also plentiful. The place was very clean.

I’m disappointed to hear that your order for delivery was wrong, I see your local and surprised that if you had such issues you’d not think to call us back to have your issue resolved, instead took to trip advisor without giving us the chance...More

Good choice of menu and stunned to see Stornoway products so a favourite with me for that. Good portion size but no brown sauce! Noted vast array of ice cream so will be back

Stopped here for lunch on a nice day, food is all cooked to order, staff were friendly. It seemed quite expensive but the quality is really good. Shame they don’t have more seating.

Food was good , we had haddock and chips twice. Food is cooked fresh so we had to wait 5 mins but didn’t mind. Prices are pretty reasonable and portions are plenty big enough. Would visit again when in the area.

If the fish is in batter then it contains gluten, and if the fish is fried in the same oil as the chips then the chips are also not glutenfree
