Been going here for some time.In the past i have always had fresh north sea cod, chips and peas on a massive oblong plate, the fish used to hang over still.On my latest visit the cod was half the size and extra chips were there to mask this con, won't be back, suggest you don't unless you prefer small portions.

Best fish and chips outside of UK Not the best of outlooks and the restaurant is very small but sit outside and just enjoy the food.Owned by husband and wife team who take turns in cooking and both do an equally good job of the frying.Dont be put off by the surroundings just go for the food you wont be disappointed

As an english traveller from Luton, I had a very good meal with the first real english cup of tea.
Although it looks like a standard fish & chip shop down a narrow alleyway, it is a short walk from
the station. The owner makes you very welcome and is english, it may not look very grand but
food quality, prices and owner more than make up for this. I highly recommend this to any UK
traveller.
