I stay around this area regularly and love this place. I usually get fish and salad and I've never been disappointed. The fish is very fresh and has a lovely light batter and there is even a motza meal alternative. However, I must say that my favourite bit is the well prepared and very fresh salads that are served.

Whether I want a freshly cooked piece of plaice or a tasty mixed kebab, for many years now, Serenes has been my go-to place for these foods. The owners are incredibly friendly and generous and make you feel like a valued customer and part of the Serene family. I have no higher praise for Serenes!

A regular at Serene, the fish and chips and all their kebabs are generally great. Very busy and best if you call and order in advance otherwise expect a bit of a wait.

Had food from Serenes many time. Always lovely and served with a smile. Lamb chops are to die for. Get them uncooked. Great value 8 for under £4.

I had a mixed lamb and chicken doner with chips and side salad. Chips - OK Glass of water - Warm, not OK! Salad - Fresh and decent sized portion Doner Kebab - The problem isn't so much the quality of the cooking, but it's basically the knowledge that this type of meat is essentially leftover carcass / mechanically recovered...

Very friendly shop with good choices other than just fish and chips. The food/fish is of good quality, but slightly excessive oil.

Got a 1/2 burger meal and a tub of humus. Both were nice until 20 mins later and I've been stuck on the toilet now for an hour

Truthfully, I have never come across any complaint like this from our quality burgers, made from only the best selected beef.My self and my staff have been confused trying to work out what... More

I used to go to Serenes as a kid, I'm 37 now. I was walking passed the other day and thought I'd check the place out. I sat down at a table and was handed a menu by a waitress. I already knew I wanted a Shish Kebab and found it pretty quickly on the menu. The only price listed... More

Immaculately clean. Great kebabs, fish & chips etc. Mustapha and Met (father and son) are good humoured and run a tight ship. Enjoy!

Our menu is easy to read, well divided into sections, clearly priced and printed on high quality card. Both customers and staff feel it is user friendly. We have tried introducing new fish lines, but customers still go for their favourites such as Cod, Haddock and Plaice. We have added shellfish to our menu with some success. Description of Serene is of a high class Fish & Chips shop, we home deliver and customers also have the option to eat-in, where we ensure we provide a friendly service. Our menu is not influenced by season, although our main menu is changed once a year, we are constantly changing our shop menu. On occasion a customer might ask for a dish that is not on our menu. If it sounds interesting to us, then we try it and then if it's worthwhile, we name it after that person We have quite a few awards including Archants Food & Drink, Community Award, Seafish Quality Award amongst a few. We also support local charity events such as schools and a tennis club for young people. The main charity we are supporting is the Royal National Mission to Deep Sea Fishermen.
