Chips delightful and plenty of them. And a decent price for a delivery, and quick besides. I can't give it 5 stars because at the end of the day, it... More

Am hoping we just got a bad night. Couldn't have been more disappointed. Especially after the excessively long wait.

Bought some fish before our journey back south. Large range of fresh fish. Fred (we believe) was very helpful regarding cooking and the fish was all prepared for us ready to cook.

Visited at 6pm on Thursday. Waited 20 minutes for chips and fishcake to be cooked, wasn't given any indication of how long the wait is, I still ended up with old chips, not sure why I didn't get the fresh ones! The waiting has happened a few times now. Portion size was small, it never used to be. Food was... More
