First visit was a great experience with friendly staff but second visit was totally the opposite! Chips OK but curry sauce had the consistency of thick mud. Took it back for a replacement or refund & was told 'no' to both! The lass who refused...More

The joy starts with the amazing fries, cooked to perfection in veg oil that makes them beautifully crisp, a healthier option as well as being vege friendly. The fish is very a generous size, and cooked to a golden crisp, served with an optional slice...More

We have often had chips from Wills and yesterday we sat outside and enjoyed the sunshine whilst tucking into our delicious cod and chips! Beautiful fish and scrummy chips 👍🏼

Fish was tasteless, batter soggy. The slice of lemon served alongside was dry and curled up around the edges. And the chips were insipid, soggy and greasy and tasted like old dripping. 2nd time trying here, thought every restaurant deserves a second chance, but it...More

Greasy stodge. The chips were congealed into one sticky lump and the fish tasted of overused oil. They could do much better.More

We don't eat fish and chips very often so this was a treat. We had heard recommendations and decided to give it a try. The hard-working staff were so polite and cheerful, the haddock was freshly cooked with nice crisp batter and the chips well...More
