We've just come back from a 2 week tour of Ireland. Tried local fish and chips when we could........not a patch on Mack's! We even had "posh" fish and chips in Solihull, at Loch Fyne......nah!

Various levels of starch in potatoes turn the chips dark..I believe on this occasional they should have been treated with a product called starch doctor but had been failed to do so. I'm really sorry you had a bad experience with us.

Went for the large portion. Lovely chips and an enormous piece of fish. Couldn't fault it though I'll be ordering the regular size next time. Traditional and somewhat pokey seating area to the rear but it was fine. Quite a bit of parking for customers.

What has happened to our fav fish and chip shop, we had takeaway and it was awful chips were dark and tasted old, we decided to give it another go and ate in restaurant. The tables were grubby looking, the fish was ok but again chips were not up to normal standard. The person who served us had batter spilled down their clothes and the loo was dirty and dingy. Please let's have it back as it was. Thanks Irene.

I'm surprised to hear of your bad experience as I've eaten from macs this evening and was as usual very happy with the food and the service..maybe give it another go as hopefully was just a one off.
