Lovely haddock supper from the team at the bay. A bit of a queue to wait for it but I guess that's good and all food cooked fresh to order....

A bit disappointing, not the best I've tasted, was expecting better after reading the reviews posted, pensioners scampi and chips consisted of four pieces only, not good value, fish and chips not any better, meagre portion of fish.

One of the best Fish and Chip shops on the planet. It really is that good. If you're in the area make sure you go. Oh, and make sure that you are hungry as the portions are generous.

It is vegetarian. I asked, no lard is used, they use sunflower oil. It is a chippy yes but a more up market one with various other options so whilst I agree is it not a restaurant it is just a really good take away.
