Probably the best food from a chippy you'll ever get! I walked 2 miles to get here and it was worth it!

Every other comment written here is correct :-) Delicious crispy & fresh fish&chips, the classic Haddock in Batter with chips (Supper version they name it) is a good choice for 4.90£ as a quick and tasty local lunch. Fast on-the-spot service. Too bad though you...More

A busy little Chippie which is an obvious indication of its popularity. We arrived placed an order, and waited just over 10 minutes for it to be ready. They were busy serving earlier customers and those arriving to pick up telephone orders. The fish and...More
