Been here a few times since new owners have had it , it's ok , but last week I had the worst bag of chips of my life ! The potatoes were unpeeled and the chips were simply awful. I wouldn't visit again

The service was slow and the fish and chips were ok but I’ve had much better. Would not bother going there again and would not recommend.

This place has to be THE best choppy on the Vale, and not just your ordinary choppy either. Chicken Goujons to die for! Friendly staff who can't do enough for you.
