Have visited the Wee Kelpie twice and on both occasions we had excellent fish and chips. The haddock was wonderful and the cod melted, the chips were fresh and chunky, hot and tasty. Recommended

It was highly recommended for a quick meal. Quite a few locals eat here. The fish was fried and delicious and the chips (french fires) were great.

Popped in early evening for supper. Fish very tasty and large portion and batter was lovely and crisp. Had the fritters, which were very good. Staff were very friendly and helpful.
