We are here for the first time the other day and it was amazing. The food was amazing and the service was great and very quick to say they were very busy.

We had been advised to visit this place for the best fish and chips. They were not wrong! Crispy batter, flaky cod and clean fried chips. Lovely!

We had lunch here, they only do take away at the moment as they had a fire in the restaurant. The service was quick and the food good. Cover your food as you leave orcthe seagulls will swoop down and steal it.
