The fish plaice is our family favorite for a fish takeaway. Their hake and calamari are delicious. They cook to order so you may have to wait otherwise phone ahead and place your order.

The calamari is a rip off and tastes crap. Rude service when queried. First and last time coming to this place. Save your money and go to some place decent. A pie at the engen is better!

Average. Old fashioned menu. Chips undercooked. Mushy peas are made from tinned peas not PROCESSED peas and its dry. I asked for grilled fish. Fish is grilled with the batter on!!!! Fish was dry. Mediocre. Don't bother.
