In this restaurant I found the best fish and chips in the area. Staff are very warm and friendly, always the fish has the same quality and taste.

Lovely grub! But it is a wait at weekends. But like most foods if you have to wait it is normally worth it.

At short notice 15 of us went to this fish bar. The staff were very helpful moving the tables in a long row for us. The quality of the fish and chips were excellant. Plenty of fish and no sign of soggy batter. Cheerful staff and it was a pleasure to eat at this fish bar.

Friendly owner, young staff try hard to please. Never had a bad portion of chips here (lived in the area for over 7 years) ... prices average. Also good southern fried chicken - restaurant area very clean (with free daily redtops to read if you're stopping for a bite of lunch).

I like to go into The Chequers where tables and seating allow you to eat in comfort. The food is excellent, and the staff are always very welcoming and friendly. My most recent visit was before noon on a Thursday, and my fish was quick to arrive (with salad in place of chips as requested) and very very tasty. Recommended!

If you want the best fish and chips, come to The Chequers Fish Bar. Always excellent quality fish, delicious chips and good-sized portions. I only eat fish and chips two or three times a year, and only from Maz and his team. Great service and a friendly welcome always. Ten out of ten!! (Also do great coffee)

Great service, Always friendly. The food is brilliant, Freshly cooked and very reasonably priced wouldn't think of going anywhere else as it just doesn't match up.
