Stopped in for a sausage supper. Possibly the worst I've ever had! Burnt reheated chips and soggy battered sausages that must have been lying cooked for hours! Also very unpleasant staff who took ages to serve me and I was the only one in! Enough said!!! Give it a miss!!!

The rooms are dirty the blinds dont close. No milk supplied in the room. Its disgracefull. The only good thing is a reasonable breakfast served by a lady in a dirty top with food spilled over it 2 days running same top. Not good.

Just like the sign says -- they make Fish and Chips and they make them very well. A crowd of us went in and we tried many of the items on the menu -- including the Italian items (which you really don't find to often in a Fish & Chips place) and it was all really good. They won all... More

The place was clean but the girl serving us clearly didn't want to be there! Surly, and just unwelcoming. Hubby ordered fish in breadcrumbs and chips which was ok. I ordered... More

Booked a cruise so thought we'd squeeze in a chippy meal and this place was recommended. Food was nice but service was too slow.
