“Unbelievably bad..”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

there were 11 of us who wanted to have some decent fish & chips... and I can't actually believe the service we received. The staff were rude and unhelpful, and the fire alarm went off. Instead of telling us what to do all the staff walked in the opposite direction. Then it stopped and they didn't even apologise for the interruption to our meal. DO NOT GO THERE. Its not nice and not worth the money at all. Plus the manager was angry at us for not having change, at the end of the day if you only accept cash expect to get notes!!!!!

“Hoped it was better - but... worse. Don't bother.”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

How hard can it be to do basic fish and chips? Rung up off their new menu which was delivered through the door. That looked so much better I assumed it may have changed hands. Ordered and collected 4 fish and chip meals - got them home and was really disappointed. Very poor, soggy chips, oily fish that didn't taste the least bit fresh and generally unpleasant. We binned the meals after a few mouthfuls and if it wasn't for the hassle I would have gone back with them.
New menu looks good - pity the food hasn't improved as much as the menu.

“awful dont go near”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

really nice looking from the out side, clean inside, there were 6 of us who ordered food the lasagna was from a packet and microwaved, the gammon was like card board and tasted of onion, the egg white was gloopy and under cooked. the senior citizen of cod and chips the cod had a large bones in and when i told the waitress she asked me what was she suppose to do about it in a very arrogant manner. then bought over 2 more pieces of fish at no extra cost. the chips were rock hard couldn't even squash with a fork. my son cut his lip on a glass that had a chip out of the rim. after complaining the staff didn't seem at all surprised. they knocked £10 off the bill.we all felt slightly ill afterwards. The drinks come from a multi pack that said not to be sold separately on the packaging????? if there was a minus rating my review would be in there
Definitely wont be going there again, AVOID GO SOMEWHERE ELSE

“Has to be the worst fish and chips in the country!”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

Massively over priced i went for Haddock £5 and chips £2.50 thinking for that price it must be great and very fresh, wrapped up tightly and hastily prepared the gentleman looked like he couldn't care less and wanted us out of the shop to close up. 7.30pm!?

Went to the seafront absolutely starving after a sea swim, opening up the wrapper to find a limp soggy, cold, grey looking, small piece of fish. and undercooked disgusting chips. If i wasnt so hungry i would have been back there in a shot. but just about stomached the meal, to be struck with an evening of indigestion and nausea.

Avoid at all costs.
