Dropped in on our holiday to take down to the beach. Cod was light, flaky and gorgeous. Batter non greasy. The chips were fluffy, full of taste and non greasy. Gorgeous chippie

Good Fish & Chips to take out and eat on the sea front. The best way to enjoy them - get yourself a seat overlooking gorgeous Woolacombe Beach.
