I never bother to look at the menu when i visit charlies. I always go straight for the fish and chips. Generous portion of fish and very tasty. The chips are good also.

A lovely place to go for your tea. Really spotless and lovely chips. It is a cafe and doesn't try to be anything else. A plain cafe but a very good one.

We enjoy going to Charley's Cafe for a fish and chip tea. There is a good choice on the menu for anyone who does not like fish. There is also a good children's menu.

I suggested this restaurant earlier but did not get a response. It is a friendly, family run business that has fantastic fish and chips. They are fresh chips, not the frozen kind which was a lovely surprise.
