My wife is Gluten free so she put this place on her "must do" list when we visited Weymouth. Very tidy, friendly staff with a quick service. The gluten free range of food was long and my wife was spoilt for choice. She chose the battered sausage and chips with curry sauce and she loved it . A big thumbs... More

I struggle to find something bad to say about this place. For a fish and chip shop, the menu is very extensive and has gluten free options too. We choose the sea bass and scampi and were not disappointed. It was cooked fresh and the chips were perfect! The sea bass was the fishiest fish I've ever tasted in batter!... More

We tried this fish and chips restaurant a couple or so years ago and thought it was one of the best around at the time, three of us went in recently and were not disappointed. Under new management the restaurant area was clean bright and decorated with historic photographs of Weymouth from the past. I ordered a pensioner special fish... More

My boyfriend and I visited here after an hour walking around Weymouth trying to find somewhat to eat. I'm 14 weeks pregnant and suffering with bad morning sickness and I didn't fancy anything but needed to eat. We actually walked past at first but the smell drew us back and we went in. We were greeted in a friendly manor... More

This place came up when I searched for Gluten Free Fish and Chips (because my other half is a coeliac and has various other allergies) I also had the gluten free version and it was delightful. There is no glamour and it's not 5 star (no offence to the restaurant) but the food is great and the atmosphere is quiet... More

Three of us stopped by yesterday and had Fish and Chips, Fish Bites and Chips and Fishcake and Chips - excellent value for money, cheery service and a great cup of tea. Well worth a visit if you're in Weymouth.
