The food in this place is absolutely lovely, all cooked to order,beautifully presented and always hot. The staff on the other hand are rude,unprofessional, moody, have no customer service skills and look totally miserable. The toilets are absolutely disgusting, if that was my business I would be totally embarrassed,keeping a toilet clean and fresh is not that much hard word.... More

Service was friendly and quick and food was served hot and fresh. There is plenty of choice on the menu and you can eat in or take away. We ate in, and the place is family friendly, clean and comfortable.

After a long walk and taking the kids to the pier we stopped here for the lunch special. Cod or haddock and chips with peas and bread for just under £6. The cafe is very dated. Seemed clean enough. The staff polite if unenthusiastic, orders taken quickly. Food cooked to order so a bit of a wait. Food was nice.... More

Came with 3 children, and we all enjoyed the food. Fish was really good, not at all greasy like some places. Only issue was that you have to pay for sauces, although the kids got one each included in kids meal. All together a nice experience.

This place is horrible. The woman behind the till did not care and argued that the meal was good but it was expensive and the fish was covered in an extremely thick layer of raw batter. Terrible service and terrible food.

These people ordered the special which is excellent value at £5.95, but really wanted a large meal to share. More

Had a very good meal, 4 of us. Chips were very good, so was the cod, fishcakes and jacket with cheese and beams. Slush lacked juice and taste, should have said something but didn't so can't complain.

We stood in a long queue and then had a further long wait after ordering for very average fish and chips. Quite disappointing.
