Fantasy quality, fresh fish & chips. The chips are fried in a light batter, so are slightly crispy - yum! Staff are chatty, friendly and efficient, definitely recommend a visit.

Used to go here as a child and can't fault the food whatsoever but the staff are beyond rude, particularly the red-haired lady who served us, rolling her eyes at us several times and slamming our food on the counter with a grunt. It's a...More

Really tasty cod full of flavour, great tasting chips. The prices are excellent value. The staff are polite and friendly. Paul's Place is worth traveling to if you're not local, but I am, so that's a bonus having a good chippy that's nearby!

Found this Fish and Chip shop were searching for second hand furniture. Food freshly cooked and the chips were cooked in batter and better than other places that I have been too recently. Recommend it to anyone.

This place could be great if it wasn't for the rude staff. All the ladies here have very bad attitudes and it appears that it's almost too much trouble for them to serve! Staff also can't wait to get out and go to the pub!!...More
