You can. They only rule we have is that if there is a queue we don't answer the phone. This is because we feel it would upset customers waiting in the shop. So we will answer if we possible can. Sarah Dornan

Description
Winner of several awards this family run traditional fish and chip shop provides excellent quality, lightly battered fish and beautiful chips. Choose from MSC North Atlantic Cod & Haddock or locally caught Plaice, Huss, Hake & Scallops. Don't fancy fish? Then why not try one of the home make steak and kidney puddings or steak pie? You can also get a haggis or black pudding supper, or perhaps a portion of battered cockles! Enjoy xx
