All food is cooked to order but they do take phone orders so no need to wait. Fabulous food and great service. Parking can be a nightmare as it is street parking. The prices are very resonable and the portion size is great.

We sometimes go here if we want a decent take-away fish and chip meal. The shop is always busy and the food is always well cooked. There can be a wait for cooked food, but the quality is worth waiting for.

Chris and Tash are doing a fantastic job. I was worried that things would change when the business changed hands last year, but I'm pleased it's still great! Still the best Cheeseburger and Chips in the area. Thank you very much!

A great local chip shop with superb food and the best staff, they always greet you with a smile. As locals in the village we telephone our order in advance and it's always ready when we arrive.

What friendly staff! The food we got was good. Didn't take ages and it was nice that it was actually cooked to order so I didn't mind waiting a few minutes for it to be Cooked. Much better than your average chippy!

We go to the Friary every week. The food is fresh, delicious, and cooked fresh to order. You can call in advance to place your order, if you don't want wait. No delivery. Highlights: - Fresh - Cooked to order - Lovely staff / owners

Contrary to another review make sure the friendly bald guy is frying your chips, he seems to be one of the only people that has discovered chips should be crispy not a soggy lump like most places. keep up the good work!More
