Roadside stand sells the best fish and chips I have ever had. Fresh haddock. We stopped as we were driving and had lunch. Pick nick tables outside to eat on and no problem having a beer from our cooler.

Made it here on their last day of their season shortly before they served their last fish for the year. Glad me made it. It is the best fried fish I’ve had and even with sharing the quantity is overwhelming.
