Drove 2 hours for this. And not the 1st time😀. The fish is superb, the chips just right. The service is a wee bit slower than I like, but so SO worth it.

This is a great place on the northern edge of Bancroft. They serve large portions of fish and chips. Although they offer Halibut and it is a more expensive fish, their cod is excellent and is less expensive. Also, if you like New England style...More

I would guess it's been opened at least five years, but no more than ten.
