Have been coming here for years. Absolute best chips and potato cakes. Fresh seafood is divine. Had a delicous spanner crab and the staff were so friendly and broke it up for us and cleaned it so we could take our meal across the road...More

This is my favourite takeaway fish and chips place, it’s also amazing to buy fresh seafood from so not just a fish and chips shop, I’ve been a local for 30 years and this is one of my FAVOURITE places to eat.

You either choose your fresh fish and get them to cook it for you or order directly from their standard menu. The seafood is always fresh and beautifully cooked.

As always the fish and oysters were fresh as. We took ours home to cook this time but they also cook it for you. Great range of seafood. Always busy which is a good sign. Always happy with our fish from Scales.
