Great service. Had standard cod and chips, the batter had a great taste and stood out next to other chip shops. All cooked perfectly with almost no grease at all. They even put up what kind of potatoes and where they are from. Nice to see a chip shop without a bloated menu too. You can't help but notice how... More

It takes a while to wait because the food is cooked to order but then it is worth the wait. One of my friends ordered a chicken burger and it looked and tasted much better yhan McDonalds.

No plaice or haddock, bit bizarre for a fish and chip shop as its kind of what people are going there for.... Never mind as my B&B have got the elusive haddock on offer at breakfast. Very long wait, I understand you are cooking the chips fresh but so does my local and I don't have to wait 15 minutes... More

Despite the disappointment of no haddock I was still most pleased with my cod and chips. Really nice batter and good meaty fish beautifully cooked. Very friendly staff. Will definitely return!
