Visited last night very good fish and chips! fresh and hot with crispy batter, over enthusiastic waitress tried to take our order before we had even sat down let alone had the chance to see the menu, and on that note, WHY does the owner have his picture on the menu ? does he think he is the fish and chip worlds Colonel Sanders ?

A little sterile looking, but an easy walk from our hotel - the Cedars Inn - in Sticklepath. Good food, reasonable prices, and courteous staff.

We quite often call into this restaurant and the food is always very good, with friendly staff.
But only issue is I like southern fried chicken and the most annoying thing is to be told that its only cooked at certain times. When you run a restaurant and its on the menu it should be available at all times. Because it is on the takeaway side! .
Will definitely go again.
