Excellent cod and chips, tasty fish and light crispy batter. The fish was skinned which is a plus because sometimes it's not very nice eat.

If you're looking for traditional English fish and chips with the additional bonus of a stunning harbour side location in which to sit and eat; then then look no further!

I would have unreservedly given a 5 star rating apart from the watery vinegar. Add a few pence to the price and leave the malt alone! (Or change suppliers?!)

If only all fish and chip shops could be as efficient as this. It's amazing how many people they can serve during busy times so don't be put off of the queue is out the door. It really will not take long to get served.

Portions are decent and very good value compared to most fish and chip shops.

I had the fish cake last time and was as good as you'd get in most restaurants.

Not really much more that can be said about it other than we will be back next time we are in Swanage

We had a family meal here. All the fish was cooked to order. The portions were generous. I must say there was a lot of oil running from the fish, maybe because it was served straight from the fryer and not stood in the cabinet. Serviettes were required. Good meal.

It was Friday evening and the queue was permanently at least 20 mins which meant one of two things. either the fish and chips were worth waiting for or there was very few other options. Having joined the back of the queue we were not disappointed, the Haddock and chips was really lovely.It was a sunny summers evening so sitting in the square eating was not a hardship. worth a visit.
