“Good eats”
Reviewed 6 May 2014 via mobile

In pursuit of the best Fish'n'chips, we tried Leo's despite the fact that it's a simple café-style place full of unpretentious locals. We found Fish'n'chips heaven. The waitresses were delightful and the fish was "to die for". The batter was light and greaseless and the fish was moist and creamy. The chips were as good as or better than we've had anywhere. And better than any we'd tried on a recent trip to Belgium, the generally acknowledged French fry capital of the world. We had gravy with the fries and it tasted homemade.

We left Leo's very happy. You will too.

“A must!!!”
Reviewed 3 May 2014 via mobile

Based on TA rating, we decided to stop here for some local fish and chips. A limited menu but exceptional fish and chips. The batter was very light, the fish was moist and not greasy and the chips (with gravy) were terrific. Fish and chips are available with either 1, 2 or 3 pieces. Fish only is available in either 2 or 3 pieces. Plenty of sides to choose from including gravy, dressing, cole slaw and onion rings. If you don't mind a rough and ready experience, you'll love this place. The burgers looked good too.
