Chips were awful, burnt and nasty tasting. Paid for cod but certainly didn’t taste like cod, it was slimy and watery and tasted disgusting. Wanted a spare paper bag to hold the takeaway easier, was abruptly told that’s 15p. Threw most of the meal in the bin. Not an enjoyable experience at all.
Would have given zero stars if possible.

Good service food also served very hot & fresh, and would come back without any question. No pasties when we visited was the only let down

This I would say is an establishment primarily focussed on fast turn around food for holiday makers. It’s a no frills reasonably priced eatery. The menu is reasonable and the food ok.
However, the take away side of the business whilst once again being quick lacks quality. The one thing that you can guarantee is that a portion of chips will be at least fifty percent hard leftovers from a previous batch. This may sound harsh, but as a local Who sometimes likes a bag of chips rather than cook, it is a fact of life.

Sorry to say but this was probably the worst fish and chips that we have ever tasted !!! The fish was undercooked and coated in a slimy batter. The chips consisted of just lots of little bitts - like the pan scraps. Obviously no care had been taken in preparing this meal. Very disappointed, I would advise, if you are fancying fish and chips then find a "proper" fish and chip shop !!!
