“Small portions and overpriced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2014 via mobile

portions way too small and overpriced ! I cannot believe how expensive it is for fish and chips, you could go elsewhere for a sit down meal for a similar price ! Hence why I only got sausage and chips. Very small portions too, looked like a Kiddys meal. X

“Absolutely awful!!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 December 2013

We have just visited this fish and chip shop (4 of us) 3 lots of fish and chips and a chip butty. I used to own my own Fish and Chip shop and I was horrified when I watched the young girl frying. She never shook the chips off so they were mega greasy, the fish was way too over cooked and again non of the oil was drained out of the fish after it was lifted out of the oil. The chips tasted like the oil was old and I've never seen so much grease in the bottom of the tray ( i ended up binning mine because I was wretching) the fish was dry because of the cremation. The bread roll was ok, but would have been done justice if it had real butter on it instead of the meanest scraping of cheap margarine.

“never again”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 October 2013

we entered the restaurant on sat evening, there were three more occupied tables so it wasnt busy. the table we sat at was still sticky. we ordered our tea- haddock and chips, and fried egg and chips with tea. the batter was thick and gluey- only just cooked, the fried eggs were swimmin in grease. it was horrible. had the waiting staff stopped playing at being rock stars and banging there heads about - in the kitchen i might add they might have come and asked if our meals were ok and then we would have been able to say no , we left the food and went. i do not recommend this place to anyone, a complete waste of money

“Average food, but good service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 September 2013

We had cod and chips and haddock and chips. The portions of chips could have been larger for the price, and the chips tasted a bit old and smelt a bit of old oil, but the service was great.
