The haddock and chips rates as the best we have ever had. Will be visiting again if anywhere near. Ate here in June 2018. Been meaning to put a review in ever since.

Just has a very pleasant dinner at the Crown & Achor. The friendly barman recommended fish and chips which were superb. The haddock was light and flaky and perfectly cooked. I polished off the meal with a home cheese cake.
