Had amazing fish and chips here whilst on holiday. Huge cod pieces and fantastically friendly staff in the Xmas spirit. Oh, and not to mention free mince pies! Thanks Chip Ahoy 👍

We stopped for takeaway fish and chips having been to this fish bar before and again were not disappointed. We sat at one of the tables outside and demolished cod and chips. Beautiful!!!

We went here for a portion of fish and chips to sit around near the Harbour. The food was amazing the only let down was the rudeness from the lady serving me, she clearly didn't want to be there and didn't smile the whole time...More

We went on 31st October so I’d imagine they’ll be open during November... and all year round! They’re only open for a few hours a day though... over lunch time and dinner time.
