Great fish and chips, lightning fast service. Battered sausages great too. Fish comes in lovely light and crispy batter and chips are tasty and fresh. Hard to beat

Second time in here. It's very clean & looks professional. There's a handy bit of parking outside. Portions are decent. I've a big appetite so got the large chip & 8oz burger. Two of us couldn't finish the chip. Prices are decent too.
