Excellent fish and chips- the best I've had since, well, I can't remember...fish was reasonablreasonably small, but beautifully cooked. Large portion of chips as well...no stinginess there, thankfully, as some popular chip shops seem to do. Reasonably priced as well. Top marks

Blue Haven has good fish and chips but order correctly. You need more than one piece of fish and only a half order of fries unless, of course, you like chips better than fish. It is fried to order so it's hot, fresh and reasonably...More
