I have never eaten so fresh cod. We have ordered one small cod , and cod bites. When we came in, we saw the queue, that was not so bad, rather quick. We got our table very fast, and the food too.

I love this place, visit almost once a month as it's a place where me and friends catch up. Whilst it is always busy, the staff never rush you out of the door once you've finished. I recommend the battered halloumi a d chips...delicious 😋

The chips here are very good and the tartar sauce is exceptional. The fish, however, is battered slightly thin and isn’t especially crispy. The fish was slightly soggy and fell apart very easily.

Fantastic lunch - the freshest fish, properly fried with excellent chips and tip top mushy peas. Couldn't fault a thing. Friendly staff, quick service and haddock to die for. As a Northener, I would skip the tartare sauce and lemon, that was inclusive, and include...More
