We were very late out so in the end went for fish and chips. It was freshly cooked, didn't have to wait too long and we ate every last bit. Very much recommended!

Went to get a take-away, but saw the restaurant was open so we decided to have a sneaky peek. Turned out to be a beautiful restaurant with lovely smelling food, so we decided to grab a seat.

The lovely staff quickly took us to our table (although they didn't offer drinks when we sat down... oh well). We ordered a starter and main. Starter of Fish Goujons (fish finger things) which were lovely and well presented with salad and lemon and pepper mayo (yummy). The main was two burgers, one cheese and one chicken. Usually when you order a burger, they assume you want the full shabang, but we were asked what we would like on it (veg, sauce ect) which i thought was excellent and very rare. Although the food came quick, it came separate. My girlfriend got her burger about 5-10 mins before i got mine. Despite this, I wasn't too bothered because the very nice lad who worked there apologised at the time and gave assurance that it would come soon. How nice.

My one gripe with the whole thing is the fact that they seemed to be scared to remove empty glasses and bottles. I put my empty glass and bottle at the side of the table to signal i wanted them removed. Despite the starter and main meal plates being removed (separately) the glasses were not removed until i got the bill.

I can look past that though, because the rest of the experience was impeccable.

Will definitely be going back soon.

p.s. very cheap, brilliantly priced.

Best chips ever. Staff are friendly. Usually get chips and wander down to lakeside. I know their restaurant area has been recently refurbished although didn't see it in this trip.
