Very friendly customer service. Good portions sizes and excellent value for money. The chips were lovely so chunky and the black pudding was also a hit. We have been before and will return again.

Had our lunch here and we weren’t disappointed. Everything is cooked to order so really fresh. The chips are chunky and tasty. The fish is amazing and so are the beanies. We just keep coming back here whenever we visit Shields. Highly recommended!!!
