“Chips in a cone”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2014

The place was rammed all day. Wherever you looked you could see people eating chips. It was like Liverpool on a Saturday night but without the orange tans and tattoos. Chips were delicious. Just under two quid a cone. Top drawer!

“Perfect Fish and chips”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014

I was a interested in going to this fish bar, because they had apparently won awards. But whilst waiting I got a bit worried, because the staff seemed at odds with each other and chaos seemed to reign on a Friday night. But guess what, as soon as I got to the head of the queue, all was calm, no miserable faces as there had been. All was well. Anyway, we were served with an absolutely perfect fish and chips, which we ate on the beach opposite. Great location for eating fish and chips at the seaside. Everything was cooked to perfection, one of the best I have had.

“Very disappointed!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

Our meal was very disappointing. I asked for plaice and chips, but was told that plaice wasn't available and neither was any haddock. So, i opted for cod and chips instead. They offer no apology for that! My wife had chicken fillets and chips. When our meals were brought to us, they were served on very small plates on top of paper. They were both very stingy portions of food. The chips were tiny and very few in number.
Not only that, after i had eaten the chips, i noticed, I had managed to eat section of the paper that the food was placed upon! Also, the two cups of tea that also ordered were served in paper cups and not in crockery as expected.

“Lovely fish 'n' chips”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014

Go here every year for the compulsory seaside supper. Good, fresh food with lots of choice. Short opening times so plan ahead.
