Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Ordered 2 x fish and chips with wine and beer . Before I had a chance to finish other half of my beer after meal which was a large one I was asked to leave because there were others waiting . Well I was a...paying customer . If you selling a dine in meal you have to let someone finish before even thinking to force them to move along . So rude and unfriendly. There is much better service and welcome elsewhere.More

We had to change our dinner plans due to our place we had reservations could not open for the day and Quinlan’s welcomed us in quickly pulling tables together to accommodate our party of 10. The menu had really good options for fish and chips...including a really nice side salad option. The team was cheerful and helpful! For a quick pop in this is a great spot for lunch- order to table was less than 10 min!More

We timed it well and got seated as soon as we came through the door (maybe around 5.30). Our order was taken quickly and there wasn’t a huge wait on the drinks or food, even though the place was packed. Everyone really enjoyed their meal...and every member of staff we interacted with was really friendly and helpful. Highly recommend!More

We had takeaway for 7 people. Chips large portions we only used 5 portions. The chips did not taste fresh. The main problem was with the fish, we ordered 4 cod and 3 haddock, only 1 of the haddock was marked, and the size of...it was a joke, it looked like a large goujon. The fish was tasteless, and the batter was soggy. If you want to do takeaway don't serve in paper, but use the cardboard boxes available.More

The food at Quinlans was very good and came quickly once it had been ordered. The problem was that the person I think was the manager was so busy seating tables that our order wasn't taken in a timely manner. At one point the manager...said he would be with us in a minute, but after ALL the other tables seated after us had been helped, I asked who our server was. Then he finally took our order. There were 2 other servers and the place is very small, so it was disappointing to be overlooked. We almost left but a nearby customer who realized our frustration told us the food was worth it.More

Love this take out, great choice and wonderful that you dont have to have something in batter too. Chips are lovely, not oily and the onion rings are a treat. Sea bass was exceptional but would have loved abit more Hake in batter was gorgeous

Seafood was absolutely fresh and fantastic. The service was very nice and accommodating. Their wine choice was limited but good choice of reds. The atmosphere was a little like a fast food restaurant, however the food makes up for it. Would strongly recommend.
