When I first started to go to this chippy about 12 months ago initially the first few times seemed to be ok, however the last few times I have been it has been terrible ! everytime I ask for potato fritters they are rock hard and undercooked ( it doesn't need a Michelin chef to cook a bloody fritter !...

Decent fish and chips, some different things on menu. Squid, fish& scallop harm. Mini fish and chips, just right size for me at lunch time. No complaints. Food cooked to order.

If you value your time don't bother, 20 minutes for 1 portion of chips, when asked how much longer the wait will be the only response was #insert voice of grump teenager# we're busy..sadly not the 1st time but certainly the last, food isn't worth the wait.....

Title of the review sums it up! Not sure what is so busy! Simple order seems to have caused chaos! Better taste good!

Never have a full selection ready and available, always a wait, sometimes you don't mind cooked to order but not everytime in a fast food joint, oh and they don't have a card payment facility which they should display so you don't find out at the last minute while attempting to pay for your food, especially if the nearest cash...

I've never known a chip shop take so long to serve you. Whatever you ask for you have to wait, it's as if they don't realise you make stuff in advance and leave it in the little hopper thing to keep warm. Shockingly slow. And when you finally get served, the fish is damp and soggy inside, i don't think... More

Great tasting fish and chips. Great service and a very clean establishment. Our order was filled within 15 minutes and the staff was very friendly and professional.

We moved to Sale in August and were very pleased to discover that we were minutes away from this amazing chip shop. A fire over the winter meant we had to try other places and we can now confirm - Lighthouse is by far the best. It's just too bad they run out of haddock so frequently.

The fish and chips are amazing and although lots of the food is cooked to order the wait is horrendous always a minimum of 30 minutes and even longer on a Friday evening. The staff are often too busy chatting to each other and friends outside the shop. I've been put off going here due to the waiting times.

It is such a shame that this chippy can not sort out its slow service. We had to wait almost 1/2 hour for 3 portions of chips last week! Rubbish!
