Popped by whilst on holiday in the area.Restaurant was empty on a Monday evening but the takeaway side of the business appeared to be busy.We both enjoyed haddock and chips-tasty ,decent sized portions ,along with tea and bread/butter.The service was good throughout.Just a pity really that there were no other diners during our visit hence there was a lack of atmosphere.We shall return when in the area next

Glad you enjoyed them, Monday evening combined with hot weather and football is fairly slow, come later in the week and you’ll fight for a table !

Came here today (21st June),for lunch.We took ours away though there is a sit down area.I had Cod & Chips and my friend just had chips.

Service was quick and very efficent and the fish is cooked to order.To be honest the chips were nicer than the cod,the batter on the cod was lovely but ive tasted better insides,though of course the restaurant can hardly test them.

Yes i would call in again if passing.

We went twice and had a really nice experience both times. Everything was clean, the staff friendly and helpful. The meals were brilliant.

I've often called here for a takeaway and never been disappointed so I decided to treat swmbo and child1, after all, it was Fish and Chip Friday.
Despite it being rather busy, a table was swiftly cleared and we were soon perusing a menu. Swmbo chose the sea bass special, child1 chose a chip nutty and I opted for fish bits, chips, curry and scraps. Child1 and my own meal was not on the cafe menu, but the waitress was happy for us to choose off the takeaway board.
The food was quick to arrive and lovely. It made a change from dragging takeaway fish and chips home often squishes the grub and can sometimes leave it a bit soggy.
The staff were pleasant, attentive and we'll presented. We were utterly stuffed so declined the desserts......until child1 spotted the ice creams and lollies in the freezer. There's always room for a Magnum.
Thanks for a good, well priced meal. We'll be back.

Definitely worth waiting til you come home from the coast for this little gem! Yes you compromise on a sea view but you will not compromise on the food.
The fish was beautiful, all cooked fresh to order and such an efficient service. You can eat in (with a brew! Bonus!) or takeaway. There are large and small portions to suit all appetites. Very clean too. Keep up the good work guys
