A proper fish and chip shop and just how things should be. Everything always tastes fresh and newly prepped. The guys will always cook us something fresh and are very friendly. It's one of our favourites.

Visited this place twice for a sit in Fish and Chip dinner and both times found the food and service very good. Prices on par with others and parking a little difficult.

Fish and chips should be easy in the U.K. - this place is one of the worst places I've ever eaten at. My burger was a joke - tesco roll, cheap crappy meat, no salad, slapped in there with no care!!! Avoid this place
