Booked on-line via web site. Arrived to find it was closing time, but because the web-site hadn't been updated they were happy to serve us. Probably the best fish and chips I've had since being diagnosed as coeliac - would highly recommend

Stood in the takeaway section for a couple of minutes before the bloke told me there would be a 15 minute wait. At least he actually told me. The girl behind the counter completely ignored me even though she could clearly see me. Not impressed!...More

Thank you for the most ridiculous review in the history of ridiculous reviews! You haven’t mentioned what food item you were looking to order but I assume you were looking for a Pie as these do take 15 minutes to cook in the oven. We...More
