Fish and chips were really good, would definitely order take out from here, but never dine in again. Service was poor, inattention from waitress and manager was inexcusable because we were one of three tables in the whole place.

I prefer to judge a fish and chip shop by their halibut. Tender, flaky and juicy. Chips are cut there and not frozen. Slaw is also mouthwatering.

Had the 2 piece cod and chips. Food arrived pretty quick given how busy they were. The staff were quite friendly and attentive. Will eat here again and again and again

Used to love it wouldn't go anywhere else for fish and chips. I agree with other reviews the fries and the fish batter are not the same. Personally I won't be eating there again unless I hear that they have gone back to they way...More
