Despite the disappointment of no haddock I was still most pleased with my cod and chips. Really nice batter and good meaty fish beautifully cooked. Very friendly staff. Will definitely return!

Great food and very clean, everything freshly prepared, But if I had a pound for each time I was called 'Sir', I would leave in credit. Stop it now, you're a chip shop.

Despite being late in the evening and the shop was trying to close down, they took the time to cook fish and chips for a couple of hungry, weary travelers. The staff was friendly and cheerful and the food was fresh and well prepared. Without a doubt, the best fish and chips I have ever had.

We were hungry and with 2 Standard Poodles in tow, takeaway seemed a good idea. We were lucky enough to happen on this wonderful place. Excellent, just plain excellent.
