Great fish and chips. The largest plaice fillet I think I've ever had covered in light batter. Great chips and mushy peas.

Crisp, light batter on fresh fish and chips that are crunchy outside and soft in the middle. Ask for your favourite fish in advance and they will ensure it is available for you if it is in the market. Nice to eat inside and no...More

We live in the same road as this takeaway, and get one regularly for a treat. The food is lovely, service is very fast, and staff friendly and helpful, what's not to like? It's also very good value, and caters for all.
