This used to be a fabulous well known chippy but since in changed hands the quality has deteriorated badly. Very very greasy chips and as soon as you walk out the door your batter is so soggy and drops off you fish so you are left with a blob of glupe !The white fish itself is nice though !!

We got a groupon deal to come and here and what a little gem: no airs and graces just gorgeous fish and chips. We will definitely go back again

Well portioned. Well priced. Lovely meal. Chips and fish where perfect. Have been before and will come again. Can tell why Gordon Ramsey and Rick Stein loved it here.

I visited this fish and chip restaurant last week with my boyfriend. We went last year and it was really good, but we were left a little disappointed this time. The young male waiter who seated and greeted us was fantastic and couldn't be faulted. However, an older female waitress brought out our food, and I realised mine was missing... More

Had lunch with our four year old grandson, superb fish and chips, lovely light batter. Fish bits for our grandson were great, small fish pieces and chips, he ate the lot with tomato sauce of course. Excellent service and we will be returning.

Went on Monday lunch. We have been several times before and never had a bad meal. We had 2 large fish and chips to take out.The fish was under cooked and the batter was pale and wet inside.
