“Traditional home cooked fish, chips and pies; tasty and wholesome.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2013

One of two visits during the month of May. The two ladies serving were pleasant and welcoming. The food was cooked fresh and it felt like I was visiting a relative. The fish and chips were near perfect.
Seven days later we revisited for more, passing by other chip shops, wanting the sincerity of the friendly greeting and, dare I say, the feeling that love and care was put into preparing and feeding a family member.
Next time, we will sample their pies and eat in the adjoining dining area.
