Visited this establishment yesterday. Ordered fish and chips twice, one with mushy peas, the other with curry sauce. The staff were excellent, cheerful, helpful and friendly.

The best fish & chips I've ever tasted. Big portions. Quick service. Bit bad you have to pay for knifes & forks though when you've already paid £20 for family's meal. Will be returning here. Yummy!

Sadly terrible food and service. Dingy interior and uninterested staff. The fish was dry and the peas tasteless. Very disappointing. Plenty of better options.
