Was in today with my husband and daughter. The restaurant and toilets were very clean and the service was friendly. Food was delicious however the fish was far too greasy. I couldn't eat it. I wouldn't recommend it. The chips and sausage were great though!

We were waiting for a Sweeney tourist cruise down the way, so dropped in and tried these guys. It was super fresh and tasty. Recommended!

Bland food, poor service time, too many orders taken at once. Also had part of our order given to someone else. Would avoid if visiting again 😖

Always go here for our Fish and Chips even though we live down the road in Dumbarton, they are the best around here, "don't just take our word for it, you should try it"
