We had the take away in November and it was great. A wide selection and the fish was fantastic. So we came back to try the restaurant experience... Don't! The service was slow and unenthusiastic. We felt like they where surprised they even had a restaurant. The selection, compared to the take away, was limited and poor. The food not... More

We took our grandson who is visiting from the US for lunch as he loves fish and chips, we were greeted by Hollie, must be a different person to the Holly who was supposedly such a bad representative of the restaurant in a previous comment, she was lovely, as was her colleague. We all had cod and chips, it was... More

We eat here regularly and it was great to visit on National Fish & Chip Day in also. The fish is always fresh and the batter is just perfect. It's never soggy, always crispy and light but still moist and full of flavour, which seems to be a difficult balance to achieve in the chip shop business. The chips are... More

The fish and chips have always been the best and the shop was always clean and tidy. Since the recent refurb the place looks very nice and inviting. Staff are always polite well worth a visit.

Best chips ever - chunky, flavoursome potatoes, and not greasy. Fresh fish cooked to order so may wait a few minutes. Option to have fish poached which came with black pepper and lemon and was lovely and healthy. Homemade mushy peas very nice. Friendly staff. Very handy as we passed it as we were leaving Lincoln after a day trip... More

Visited while staying with our friend in Lincoln - She always visits when the opportunity arises! Great award winning Fish and Chips, we had the senior citizen specials which we found very good, The car park is a small one, but road parking a short distance away was OK.

Fish and chips are excellent here. We ate in the restaurant part which is simple but nice. My only criticism would be the very small portion of ketchup they provide in a dish upon request... This always results in having to ask for multiple extra servings. Why can't the ketchup be on the table along with the vinegar and salt?!?
