This was the first time we have been here but definitely won't be the last. The portions were huge and I am still full 8 hours later! We called on our way to a holiday cottage and we were taken to a table near to the door because I have a broken bone in my foot. The staff were really... More

Called in for fish and chips. Seated immediately, order taken promptly and efficiently. Ordered the 12oz haddock which came with tea or coffee, chips and bread and butter. What arrived was definitely a plateful! Everything tasted great and it certainly didn't disappoint.

We have eaten here many times and the food has always been amazing, it's more of a drive from our home but well worth the trip. It can get very busy which can slow down the meal arrival but again it's well worth waiting for.

It is very rare to find fault, usually the only fault I have is that I can't eat all I am given!! Occasionally you have to queue, but not for very long. The fact that people will queue is a measure of how good it is!

Thank JOHN H
