Wow is all I can say about this place. The batter (gluten free) was light and crispy. The fish (haddock) was creamy and succulent. The chips were amazing as were the homemade mushy peas and tartare sauce! They even provided Gluten Free vinegar.This place is...More

Despite all the award stickers on the window and doors the food was average. Haddock chewy and bland, mushy peas looked as if they were from a tin bread and butter supposed to be from a local baker but could have been a supermarket loaf....More

Hi sorry peter I didn't check the prices 😊
In your window, it says you are child friendly, yet you ask parents to fold buggies. As a parent of a child who is too young to use a high chair (8 weeks old) it seems we weren't welcome. Can you clarify your 'child friendly' sign please? Does it not include babies?
