Only had cones of chips before we headed off to walk along the river. Very impressed with the chips though very tasty & crisp. Nice outdoor eating area.

Enjoyed a lovely meal of Haddock and Chips in a very clean restaurant. Pleasant staff and lovely surroundings. The batter on the fish was perfect, not stodgy or greasy and the chips cooked perfectly. They do eat in or takeaway, we ate in and although basic, very clean and the food was lovely.

My partner and I were staying locally for a few nights so popped along for lunch. The service was very friendly and warm but we, having dreamt of seaside fish n chips, were rather disappointed by the cod which was far from freshly caught.

Really enjoyed fish and chip meal with my family in the resturant. Lovely meal, couldn't find any faults with it. Fish was great, batter light and even enjoyed the chips (don't normally eat chips). Friendly staff, good service and clean restaurant. We will be back.
