Visited this place several times and never was good enough. Portions of fish and chips are very small even you order large.. also it's very expensive. I recommend to visit Ossie's which is few minutes walking distance and is much more better.

Despite the fact that this place is in Tourist Trap Land, right next to The Canterbury Tales, the service and quality of the cod and chips I had was amazing. Highly recommended.

Fish was soggy and not fresh. The portion sizes are far too small for the price. Customer service was good however.

Super friendly staff we had the fish and chips and the calamari and chips. The fish was really good and fresh. The calamari was delicious. Just not a big fan on the chips. Definitely a meal to try there. Really like the area.
