The restaurant itself is a pretty cold place, both in ambiance and temperature. However the fish and chips are second to none. To be fair I usually buy my fish and chips at the takeaway counter and eat them at home.

Wouldn't call this a restaurant really,more a cafeteria,but it's clean and comfortable.The food is very good and the staff are friendly and efficient.Hardly a place to go for a special event but great just to eat out instead of cooking.

There was a clear statement that the haddock will be cooked to order - mine wasn't! For such a well know chippie it was hugely disappointing to be served a haddock that was already cooked and sitting (spoiling) in the top store of the fryer....More

Chips goujons and mushy peas, bread and butter and tea. All was well up to usual high standard. A little concerning that the floor was swept at three of the four tables surrounding ours. Will go again.

Probably the best in the area, if there’s a better one, I’ve not found it yet. Great fresh fish and chips as well as friendly table service.
