Haddock and chips was tasty although the fillet itself was on the small side. Annoying that they don’t take card payments. Still better than average, though: particularly the chips.

Fancied fish and chips, heard lots of people saying that this is the best fish and chips, well I thought it was worth a try. Well all the reviews before matched the fish and chips were spot on. Fresh fish and perfect chips so what...more does one want, the’re number 1 in my estimation, ok you’ll get blips but that’s will occur where every you go, so well done and the staff are polite greet you with a smiley face. Sorry that there isn’t a photo it was devoured quicklyMore

Fantastic fish and chips. Did us a special request of lightly battered fish. Very quick service as it was a large order. Would use again.

Staff are amazing. Special thanks to Kerry who very kindly sourced gluten free batter and understands how to keep people with a celiac diet safe. 👍😍 The fish and chips are freshly cooked and delicious. Easily 10 out of 10. Feel very lucky having this...as our local chippy. Thank you.More

COVID-19 brought in some changes, now you have to order using a mask and only 2 people at a time allowed in the fish shop! Once you've ordered you need to stand outside and wait for your order, allowing other people to be served. What...originally annoyed me was the "local" people who didn't abide by these rules. Silly "Selfish" people who still stayed in the shop waiting for their order, preventing other customers from entering. Also people who said they'd "pre-ordered" and expected to "jump-the-queue", whilst you'd been there waiting 20 minutes from opening time!!! While the service wasn't ideal, the quality of the white fish was excellent. I'd ordered 3 times whilst on holiday and found my large cod and large haddock to be quality fish and mushy-peas second to none. However the batter was very dry and not to the quality I'd normally expect as from my native Yorkshire Resorts of Scarborough and Whitby. Not sure whether they use "Beef Dripping" here, but comparing with my visits in 2019, it seems the quality has vastly improved.More

Best fish and chips with mushy peas ever, loved it. Top quality, the best. 5 star. Added salt and vinegar made it, all options offered

Very poor quality. Soggy fish and chips, fish smothered in batter. Very expensive for third rate food. Avoid!

I've been here quite a few times, always cheerful and friendly staff, they remember regular customers and have a chat. Convenient location opposite mini Tesco, so I can place my order, cross the road and get some cider or a bottle of wine, come back...and its wrapped and ready for me! My only complaint is they close at 9 pm, thats a bit early for me sometimes! and beware, they do not take credit cards its cash only. You can I suppose eat there, but really its not a restaurant its a take-away serviceMore

Had fish & chips twice whilst on holiday. Both times fish was overcooked and dry. Was left disappointed.
