The omens weren't good. People were queuing out the door on a wet evening. When we witnessed the service at the takeaway counter it was easy to understand why. The two ladies were very pleasant but they were only processing one order at a time. So, someone would order a dish and if it wasn't available they were waiting for... More

Popped in here for a takeaway. I think we may have just been unlucky as one piece of cod was very good and the other, well, not great. (There seemed to be as much batter as fish.) On the plus side the chips were good (a generous regular portion fed 3 of us) and the mushy peas very tasty (and... More

Friday night fish and chips, obviously popular at this shop. Had to queue which I think shows what the locals think of Tuckers. Had cod and chips, reasonable price and Good quality. Recommended. Only 6 min walk from b&b No.23 .

We have had fish & chips from Tuckers many times in the last 12 months. The quality is very inconsistant! I generally have a large fish, which is normally over-cooked and has the texture of plywood, ie, dry and fiberous. The chips are usually ok. After eating here I sometimes feel that we have paid a premium price for a... More

Succulent haddock, light crispy batter, fresh chips and proper mushy peas garnished with lemon and served with a smile. Tonight is carnival night and the restaurant is really busy but standards haven't slipped. Absolutely delicious. The pot of tea was good too.

I have waited for over twenty years for faggots and chips and was not disappointed. From the delicious peas to the succulent faggots and superb chips it was a meal to savour. And mention should be made of our friendly and helpful waitress, Freya. And don't forget the ginger beer. Heaven indeed!

I was very disappointed with the chips that I bought at Tuckers. I had to throw them away as they were as far from crisp as you could imagine and tasted/smelt strongly of oil that hasn't been changed enough. Surely it can't be that hard to cook a crisp chip in oil that shouldn't taste or smell of anything. Yuk.

The chips aren't the best I've ever had but they are really nice all the same, the fish cakes are amazing and so are the pies I have to queue for a long time sometimes due to long queues but that just shows how good the place is I have always liked going in for a treat to have a... More
