Not as good as I remember from my childhood in Scotland but not far away. Nice size fish moist and better not too heavy. Chips are good (we got a fresh batch) Sit in or take away little difference. Don't forget the salt and vinegar.

Ate in the restaurant on a Saturday evening and were suspicious about being the only ones in there. However, once the food arrived we couldn't understand why. We had a mixture of fish dishes and were all impressed. Would definitely recommend the fish and chips!
