“Amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

On the way back to our campsite we decided to pick up some fish and chips. My husband was served instantly - the food was ready and dished out quickly. It was piping hot when we got back to the tent and it was delicious!!! Some of the best fish and chips I have ever had. Plus it was buy one get one free for the fish so it was all under £20. Fantastic!

“The best fish and chips ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014 via mobile

Not much more to say, really great you can add your own salt and vinegar as I like a lot of vinegar. Clearly popular. Crispy batter on cod but not greasy. Proper chips not just those hard small pointy pieces (ends of the potato). Would go back if it was local.

“A Propper Chippy!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2014

My wife said I had over ordered when she saw the size of the portions! That said my kids (6, 8, 11) polished off most of it - less a few chips. Great Cod and chips and for a pretty good price. Staff were friendly and service was good. I ordered 5 portions and had to wait a few minutes for them to cook it so it was piping hot. No complaint, a good honest chippy!
