Don't go to any other chippie in the area. This is without doubt the best! Not posh. But reasonably priced for excellent food. Go once and you will go back again and again.

Quick service by friendly pleasant staff. The fish and chips were excellent and the portion size if anything was a little much. The battered sausages were excellent as well.

It's a family run restaurant. They close for approximately 2 weeks in August for annual holidays. They always put a notice up in the window well in advance.
