Fish and chips should be easy in the U.K. - this place is one of the worst places I've ever eaten at. My burger was a joke - tesco roll, cheap crappy meat, no salad, slapped in there with no care!!! Avoid this place

The food from here has always been good and we have always enjoyed the fish. Not really a great deal you can say about Smiths but so far we have not been disappointed.
