Got to be one of the best chip shops I've visited. Love the idea of a mini meal as my fiancée can't eat a full portion. Great curry sauce, friendly and highly efficient staff. Love it!

A very delicious lunch with very generous portions! Quick service with a smile and outside seating on the square. They even sell the crispies you get at the bottom of a packet of chips!! 😍
