Went into shop whilst waiting the arrival of the Olympic Torch in Durham City.

Was by far the highlight on the evening. Six meals, all huge pieces of fish perfectly cooked and the chips were beautiful.

Kids meals had free drinks and toys.

Extremely clean and staff very friendly despite it being very busy.

Well done on such a great service !!!!

Thank Clockstand

What it says in the title, really. If you're in Durham city centre and feel like fish and chips while seated in a restaurant, this is the place to be. Both the fish and the chips are good, and I doubt they could be any better. Which is to say that the restaurant is good, but that fish and chips are, well, fish and chips. So if you like fish and chips, you could do much worse than visit this place.

Thank you for the positive review. We usually expect people who come in to our restaurant to 'want' fish and chips! People who want something else don't. Fish & chips is a noted WORLD CLASS dish and we are proud to specialize and work hard to do it justice.

Lovely restaurant with great food and interesting people watching. We stopped here once while visiting Durham and enjoyed it so much that we decided to go again. The food was excellent, well priced, and good portions. The waitstaff was helpful without being overbearing. Go if you get a chance.
