One of my mums favourite places to eat. We were o n our way home and hungry about 2pm so dropped in. Great fish & chips with a pot of tea and bread & butter. We have one portion of chips between us and get mushy peas instead. Always quick and pleasant service.

The fish and chip shop side is the best option, I have used the restaurant, but sat outside using the walk in chip shop side is best, The staff are friendly, the place is clean, and best of all, the food is cracking

Every time we visit we get the same welcome and attention. The senior's meal is good value for 3 courses. The restaurant offers gluten free on all courses in this deal. The quality control is excellent and the fish is cooked to order arriving at table sizzling and tasty. It is also open all day.
