First visit to this place and order 3 takeaway suppers, one fish, one black pudding, one sausage. The batter was seriously full of grease and oil and was quite chewy instead of crunchy, chips weren't that great either. Quite expensive for what we got.

All of the food is usually cooked to order so no luke warm food or items that are soggy as they have been sitting for a long time. Quick delivery service too.

This is the best chip shop I have ever been in. The mini fish tea is excellent value. Food was piping hot and the fish was so fresh with no bones at all. Staff could do with being a bit pleasanter.
