Fresh, fast and friendly. Make sure and have a bit of craic with Geoffrey (the owner), he's a star but hears the warning, you will probably only understand 50% of what he says!

Ordered the gravy cheese chips and what was supposed to be garlic cheese chips, never in my life have i ever been so annoyed over a takeaway. Took the garlic cheese chips from the bag and was literally soaked from what seemed to be some sort of garlic "oil" it literally poured out like a tap all over my clothing... More

I had fish and chips, wow, I was given two big pieces of battered fish, that was so firm and delicious, had a couple of bones not many though, so was a bit careful and a big serving of the most delectable golden chips. The people running it are very friendly and the meal was reasonably priced, around 5 pound.

We had the nicest cod supper from here last week. The cod just flaked, it was so fresh. Chips were great.

May be the best fish and chips I've ever had. You get a lot of it too! Good food, good value! A surprising find in Bushmills.

I visited this restaurant by pure change, not expecting anything out of the normal from a standard-looking, take-out place. I noticed the pictures on the wall, portraying the former owner as a race car driver. I hinted: This guy knows good food (he must have traveled a lot). I was right. My order was prepared on demand and, even though... More
