We thought the long long queue was an indicator of a good fish and chip shop but now realise it was just due to slow service. Small portions and not particularly nice. Staff slow and a bit grubby. People waiting for service in the sit...More

We visited the chip shop on a very warm evening, it was a squeeze to get in, however everyone was nice to each other. My friend and I ordered from the ordering point. There are plenty of notes which say they cook fresh, so we...More

Enjoyed the over priced fish and chips (large haddock was tiny). Can you believe that my wife was charged £1 extra to have no batter???????!!! This needs to be looked at because you are very expensive for fish and chips. As said good quality but...More

Firstly, I'm glad you enjoyed your meal however your comment regarding the additional £1 charge for grilled fish I feel is unreasonable. This is a totally different process to cooking a pan full of battered fish and is only a small contribution to the extra...More

Very expensive and it took 30 minutes to arrive. The whole process was chaotic and slow with fish occasionally appearing from the pan at a mind-numbing rate. The queuing area in front of the counter is an incredibly claustrophobic experience and while we enjoyed eating...More
