Had fish and chips twice in three days from here. The chips were fresh not frozen and cooked properly. The fish was lovely and fresh, I am not to keen on batter but had to say their batter was really nice. Staff friendly. I shared regular fish and chips portion and this was more than enough for us, good size.

On a bitterly cold day we escaped the elements and ate our lunch here. The fish was freshly cooked for us which meant a small wait but well worth it. Chunky cod fillet, crispy batter and good chips.Pleasant staff. Clean shop.

Fish and chips were very tasty, we sat inside but with a great view of the harbour on a windy day. The staff were friendly, will definitely be returning.

I nearly walked past this place after deciding I would go to go to "another" fish restaurant around the corner. I'm sure glad I changed my mind. It is counter service but they bring your drinks over. The 2 male staff were polite and efficient. A few people were eating as well as taking food away. The fish was freshly... More

There are plenty of fish and chip places to choose from so we picked this on spec. Weren't disappointed, the fish was lovely and the chips were crisp and dry - eat in or take-away - we took away and sat overlooking the harbour.
