If you are looking for lovely fish and chips this is the place. As well as tasty 'chip shop' meals there is a wide selection of sandwiches, baked potatoes and daily specials. Some lovely desserts and bakery foods.

Expensive and poor quality. Complained about the batter and chip portion size small for the cost of dish, when we complained and sent back the dreadful battered item there was an apology but no offer of even a discount or complementary drink. Waitress gloomy. Decor shabby.

Ordered 3 fish & chips and 3 drinks. 2 of the fish were average to poor, all the chips were just look warm and very... More

I went there with the young ones for a late lunch. Menu is very extensive, food was nice but the prices they charge is a bit in the high side for what is basically a sit in chip shop. Service, cleanliness was faultless but what caught my eye was a charge of 30 pence for a glass of tap water... More

Ordered 3 fish teas. The fish was covered in a pale mush of unrecognisable "batter". We asked the waitress what kind of fish was it as it was a greyish piece of nastiness. She replied either haddock or cod and asked if we were not enjoying it as one of her regulars had also complained about her fishq. Although the... More

We visited for breakfast early one morning (around 9.30am). We were shocked to walk in and find fish and chips ready to serve if anyone wanted them! At 9.30am?! We ordered the large breakfast which came extremely quickly... obviously because everything has been deep fried - even the sausages! I'd say it's all very 'average' unless you are a lover... More

Looking for breakfast and Starfish had a great choice ended up with a starfish bap and a cuppa all for just £3.50! Bap was stacked high with link sausage, bacon, egg, tattie scone and for those of us black pudding. Scrumptious!
