Great fish and chips- portions size is very big. There is always a line- that should tell you the food is good and fresh. The food is cooked to order. Staff always friendly.

If you love fish and chips go here! Set in a traditional medieval style building on several floors. Quality of the fish is always fresh and included is homemade tartare sauce and ketchup. Large selection of local ales and the wine is very reasonably priced....More
