We were all starving and came off the motorway to get fish and chips here. There were lots of people going in and out which is usually a good sign. Chip portions weren't big and fish batter was not crispy. My wife enjoyed hers but I didn't rate it at all.

Great wee chippy. First class and very tasty. Best haggis supper I've had. Crispy batter and tasty haggis. Chips were fresh and very tasty. Very pleasant staff. Will be back for more next time I'm in Lochmaben. Highly recommended.

Called in for a couple of fish suppers and were not disappointed. The food was piping hot and generous portions. Very reasonably priced.

After finding Annandale Water Services only had McDonalds we went on to Lockerbie. Fish supper - the traditional way - sat in the car. But heaps better than McDonalds. Plenty for us so good value

I had a 38 minute break between trains in Lockerbie yesterday evening. Standing on the station platform, I could smell fish and chips and so I walked a short distance and found this wonderful shop. I ordered a standard piece of fish together with a half portion of chips and this was more than enough for me. The fish was... More
