Having had lunch next door at Bessie's tea shop we stopped by here at about 7:30 on a Saturday evening on one of the hottest days of the year. The restaurant was busy but soon cleared a table.

The waitress confirmed that they do gluten-free fish and chips (plaice, cod, haddock), although this isn't advertised anywhere on the menu. Be careful, though, as the fish is cooked in the same oil as the rest.

My companion had the GF haddock and chips and I had the normal haddock. Both dishes were lovely: the GF batter was very light and my companion commended it; both fish portions were good-sized but not enormous. The fish was cooked perfectly; the chips were just right. Our portion of tartare sauce was very generous and nicely flavoured.

The service was really friendly indeed; both from our waitress and the manager.

The only downside was the state of the gents toilet, which was really rather unpleasant.

Second visit to this restaurant. It was a busy Saturday evening but the staff were very helpful and people were queuing up to get in. I had fish and chips and my partner had pie and chips. It was absolutely lovely, all homemade and good value for money. Will certainly be going again and definitely recommend it.

A lovely place to eat. The food is home made, it's tasteful and very well presented. The lamb & chicken dinners were to die for. The staff are very nice & friendly, we have been many times and will go again.

Nice fish and chips, just the portion size let it down. Even the waiter admitted the fish as like a children's portion

Had a midweek roast lamb with all the trimmings. Very good value. Fabulous salted caramel tart for dessert. I highly recommend this establishment. Well priced with friendly staff
