It depends who is frying as to what quality you get. Don't expect fast food as you won't get it. All orders cooked while you wait although at least you know it is recently cooked. The fish size has reduced dramatically even though north sea fish stocks are higher and the wholesale prices have dropped. All in all not bad... More

We took a school group of 8 children with special needs and the lady who served us was brilliant. Lovely food, great service, reasonable prices. Children's menu is brilliant. We would recommend this to everyone!

Just the loveliest fish and chips I've eaten for a long time . But be aware that out of season they tend to close early in the week ,we went in just before 8 o'clock and they had stopped cooking , thanks to the very kind woman in there who cooked us 2 beautiful pieces of fish .

Thank Gillian B
