Here you can have a sit down meal 🥘 breakfast onwards . Much of the breakfast is precooked and kept warm above the chip fryer. With groupon deals you can eat from £6. The take away is exceptional . Cooked fresh. Boxed or bagged , pensioner specials, and free hot drinks while you wait . Parking can be challenging .

Had a child's fish and chips. The fish was cold chips, ok. My husband had a pie and that was cold as well. Very over priced for what it is.

gavlewis123, Manager at Papas Barn, responded to this review

Dear Mr Hawkins Sorry you feel that way. £3.50 is the price of a large portion of chips, which is enough for about 3 people! We think that is a bargain price ! Also our chips are award winning, crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. Delicious We hope that you change your mind and see you soon...... More

My wife and me love the friendly staff, super clean environment and stunning food. You pay a reasonable price but believe me it's worth EVERY penny, food is simply stunning. Breakfast menu is mega in value and quality. Waitress staff are very helpful and the menu is varied for what is a chip shop. Take away is very good too,... More
