Never been disappointed when coming here for fish supper which we do about once a month, it's definitely the best fish and chip shop for miles around.

I have frequented this Fish Bar on a number of occasions and my experiences are mixed to say the least. To begin, the fish cakes are massively over seasoned with grey pepper making the cakes inedible. The chips which should be the staple of measure of any good fish and chips are weak to say the least, they vary from... More

After 12 years of going to this fish and chip shop I can honestly say that the level of customer service has diminished. I popped in last Friday, ordered and paid. There was an event going on at the village hall and a large order had been placed. 20 minutes later the person in front of me got up and... More

Great friendly guys behind the counter, nothing is too much trouble for them. If there is a better fish and chip shop anywhere I've yet to visit it

Friendly and obliging with consistent quality, though it took a while for me to realise that wrapping chips makes them soggy, now have unwrapped and they are crisp and scrumptious.

This Fish Bar has been around for decades and rarely disappoints. The fish is always fresh and they will cook to order if you want. Portions are very generous and the batter great. Highly recommended.

Always our first choice for takeaway when we're staying nearby for a holiday. It gets busy as it's so popular and you can often be queuing out the door. Everything cooked fresh so it can sometimes mean a bit of a wait, but it's well worth it. Highly recommend it - my tip for the fish lovers is that sometimes... More

Fantastic fish and chips. They even do a gluten free night on the last Sunday of the month which is fab!
