“AWFUL”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2012

Have just visited this establishment about 1 hour ago. It was awful truly awful. The fish was not fresh and the chips were full of rotten pieces. Don't visit.

“A real must”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2012

I have used here as both a carry out and sit-in. Seriously recommend the fish and chips - freshly prepared while you wait. Staff are always chatty and polite and I think its really good value for money
