Popped in on a flying visit to Poole for the weekend. Cod and chips in the restaurant with a bottle of Chilean sauvignon blanc for @£30 can't be bad. Perfectly cooked, with the oil well drained...lovely light crispy batter and firm fluffy chips. We splashed out on some mushy peas too. Lovely place...you should go.

My wife and i were staying at the adjoining Travelodge hotel. On walking back from a night at the dogs my wife smelled the delicious smell of fish frying (we were over 200mts away) and instructed me that she was hungry!!!! On getting my wife back to our hotel room i took a hop skip and a jump across the... More

This is by far the best fish and chip shop in the area. We have one closer to us but it just doesn't compare. Everything is cooked to order so lovely and fresh and crisp. You can also eat in with a lovely view of Poole Harbour

The portion sizes were absolutely fine and I enjoyed my medium fish and chips with salad garnish, lemon and a bread roll for £9.95 plus mushy peas an extra £2.25. There are plenty of other options and they do gluten free batter which I thought tasted excellent and other gf options including mains, sides, vinegar, etc (my wife and son... More

Donna, Jen my cousin and I had tea on Thursday 9th February 2017. Wow the food was absolutely fabulous. A great selection of fish and how to have it. Reasonably priced. Shame as it's so far away as would pop there more often.

Had lunch here today,food was OK but waited an hour to be served,I said to a member of staff it was unreasonable to be waiting that long she immediately let out a torrent of abuse very embarrassing in front of friends I will never go again

The real surprise about this restaurant is the lovely view over Upton Lake - ask for a table by the window. The food is traditional battered fish and chips with interesting specials such as grilled lemon sole. The takeaway at the front of the restaurant is always busy. It's worth booking a place in the restaurant. The staff are incredibly... More

Saw this place mentioned online and thought we'd try it. The food was delicious. Staff very friendly and helpful. The restaurant looks directly out on to Poole harbour although we were there at night so it was very dark! This place is well worth a visit though - good wine list and lots of specials on top of the usual... More
