We had a fish and chip takeaway tonight and quite frankly it was disgusting. The batter on my haddock was soggy, thick - almost gloopy and oozed oil. I had to wipe the plate there was so much residue. I really thought it was Dornan's...More

My first visit since the business changed hands but new owners have certainly stepped into the shoes of their predecessors and the quality remains high. Great fish cooked to order and the same oils used as before.

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
