Everyone keeps raving about these fish and chips, and say there’s sometimes a queue of about 45 minutes long. They were ok but we had some which were ten times nicer while we were in Dunbar.

We discovered the Bay Fish & Chips before while on a strole before we even checked in to our rental cottage. We loved it so much, we went back again during a week’s vacation. Very organized service and the quality second to none.

It is vegetarian. I asked, no lard is used, they use sunflower oil. It is a chippy yes but a more up market one with various other options so whilst I agree is it not a restaurant it is just a really good take away.
