They catered for her with exceptional care not only with having Fish & Chips & Pea fritter, then she also had Pineapple fritters for pudding. The vast menu... More

You can bring alcohol to this restaurant if you wish but we decided to... More

A great fish and chip shop, both takeaway and eat in. I had possibly the best cod and chips ever, and must not forget the pea fritter! Staff were very friendly and there appeared to be a number regulars eating in, always a good sign. Also, it appears you can reserve a table, a good idea as the small restaurant... More

Chips tasted good too , but could have been slightly more crispy Onion rings were not very good We'll definitely be... More

We were reccommended this fish and chip shop from my mother and farther. My father is a celiac and my wife is sensitive to wheat. The food was amazing as was the friendly service! We traveled over an hour just for our dinner. I feel this says enough lol..
