Really fresh, tasty fish and chips from this lovely takeaway. Light crispy batter, chunky chips and great cod. Called the order in earlier in the day as we were feeding ten and they cooked fresh and were bang on time for our collection. Highly recommend.

Phoned an order through for a family of 10 and they were just finishing it when we got there and hour later. Fish & chips and sausage and chips. Cooked fresh, was hot and delicious.

Based upon our experience the fish was average only although quite warm but the chips were not up to standard and on the cool side - perhaps we were unlucky as to how long they were previously cooked but we will not hurry back.

Delicious fish and chips, generous portions and friendly staff. The premises are very clean and there's a restaurant next door if you want to eat in.

You get what you pay for. Simple fish and chips, fish tasted fresh batter was a good texture. Only gripe really was the curry sauce was a bit watered down, however portion sizes are good.
