Well. I'm in my 54th year of life and I've travelled but I'd say, without a doubt, the haddock I ate this afternoon was, by far, the best ever. The ambiance in the restaurant is lovely, its spotlessly clean and the prices are reflective of comfort and quality. Absolutely loved it.

Busy, though, didn't mean chaotic or noisy, rather a pleasing hum of dinners enjoying the food and the environment. We had haddock (regular, three sizes available so choose wisely depending... More

We visited on a quiet midweek lunchtime just after the restaurant opened. There were plenty of seats available at this time, however, due to its obvious popularity by the time we left it was full. We made use of a two for one offer on their website and both had large cod and chips with a pot of tea. We... More

We prefer trenchers now to the Magpie, there is a lot more space in here and its a bit more upmarket. The magpie pack you in like sardines, unless you get a really good table upstairs. The fish was nice, and peas were nice, cant do much wrong with peas though, but the chips were hard , not soft at... More

Forget what else anyone says. They are simply the best faith and chips restaurant. Friendly staff. Great portions. Lovely restaurant and I know this is slightly strange. Check out the toilets. Pay a visit. You won't be disappointed.

Had a get together with good friends and the staff were very friendly and helpful to our large group. The food was beautiful and they make gluten free batter which was a nice change.
