Fish & chips is sure to please. Reminds me of the ones I used to get when living in London, minus the newspaper! Moist with a very light coating on the fish. I had amazing onion rings. My hubby had fries, sadly soggy - he's...More

Stopped in for lunch after reading the reviews. Warning- the portions are huge so bring your appetite! Loved the signs they have on the wall. The fish was lightly battered and fried perfectly. Husband had the scallops which were also very good. What impressed me...More
