“Sit down area is a winner”
Reviewed 9 March 2014 via mobile

My partner and I wanted fish and chips but wanted to sit down, excellent compromise of take away food with a sit down area! Food was decent, not a bad price but not the cheapest, portions were pretty big though.

Was fairly busy always a good sign. One staff member was highly annoying shouting at the top of his voice to others about anything but work, but for a quick trip for the chippy no complaints!

“Not what was expected!”
Reviewed 16 February 2014 via mobile

Went into the restaurant for some fish and chips with my other half, all seemed lovely until a couple of hours later. Got home after an enjoyable day out only to feel really unwell after eating the fish and chips, whether it was the oil they'd cooked them in, who knows. Would not go back after that as I've never felt unwell after having fish and chips before!
