Small shop, easy to miss, with limited parking outside. Free 1 hour car park can be found around the corner however. Absolutely fantastic food and service. Chips were tasty, aswell as the haddock. Will try and visit again!

Odd reviews about unbattered fish should be ignored! Good fish n chips, fish well battered and cooked, chips crispy and great portions. Worth a takeaway!

Could have been a bad night, but can only comment as found. Fish batter a bit greasy and fish a bit thin. No where near the best fish and chips I have had. Sorry.
