We had cod and chips. The cod was a good size, for a regular and the portion of chips was generous. The cod was nice but the batter was a bit too greasy. The chips were strange. I prefer normal chip shop chips. All in...More

Really tasty cod full of flavour, great tasting chips. The prices are excellent value. The staff are polite and friendly. Paul's Place is worth traveling to if you're not local, but I am, so that's a bonus having a good chippy that's nearby!

Found this Fish and Chip shop were searching for second hand furniture. Food freshly cooked and the chips were cooked in batter and better than other places that I have been too recently. Recommend it to anyone.

The worst chips I have ever had, I think they were either warmed up from lunch time or the oil was old and needed changing. The lady who served me seemed scruffy and surly and was coughing while serving myself and customers in front of...More
