Used to get big helpings and service was very fast and staff were friendly but portions are quite small now and sometimes very greasy. When ordering fish (Cod) the batter is usually thicker than the cod. Chips have been frequently heated before serving.

I found that the prices were very high, then when you bought there it was greasy and you had to wait long time to be served! Hopefully, it may have changed since I was there!

This is THE BEST place to go in town for fish and chips, period! The fish is always perfect and done just right and their fries are just awesome! Have the gravy, pour vinegar over it, it's like a symphony in your mouth.
