Stopped for some fish and chips, a family of 2 adults, 2 children and a cockerpoo puppy. Very welcoming and even the puppy got a bowl of water and a treat. Fantastic fish and chips, great portion sizes, highly recommend.

We ate in and had beautifully fresh fish with deliciously crispy chips, served piping hot and thoroughly enjoyed them. Good value for money and friendly service. All in all very happy customers and would visit again if in the area.

We came in for lunch and had cod and chips. The food was not of great quality, as it seemed that the fish had been fried a while before and arrived immediately - the batter was soft and the chips were also soggy. Not great,...More
