Only had chips and curry sauce, but chips were freshly cooked and delicious. Really good range of options on the menu. If I hadn't eaten cream tea earlier would have tried the garlic scallops.

Go here. That's it. P.s We'd been told to try the quayside van - which had decent fish but turned out to be using frozen chips (!) Shame on you van girls! Due to a clever if quirky local plan, you have to return your...More

The queues for this fish and chip takeaway say it all. I had haddock in batter with chips, my partner cod in batter and chips. Both stunning. Eaten on a bench among many others doing the same. Your only worry is the seagulls, but here...More

When fish is cooked to order as this was you don't expect it to be overcooked. The chips were good but my fish was overcooked and dried out

The service was good and quick. As there are no bins in the street, because of the sea gulls, every eatery are obliged to provide bins for the chip paper. This place should empty theirs more often.

Very tasty fish (cod and haddock), crisp chips and piping hot. A little bit of a wait as it is cooked to order. Never had better than this. Not cheap, but no dearer than here in Warwick and well worth the money.

No seagull attacks and left to eat our fish and chips in peace for once but well worth the price in my view

This place honestly serves the best fish and chips we have ever eaten anywhere in the country. We travel a lot and it's one of our favourite meals but nowhere does it better than this place. The staff are helpful and friendly and everything is...More

Hi there, thanks for the enquiry! I'm afraid we don't offer anything totally gluten free at present. We do fry our chips in separate pans from the fish, but some contamination is likely due to us needing to use various tools... More
