Tried them for a take away. Very friendly counter staff with a nice bit of banter. The fish was excellent with a lovely batter and moist flaky interior. Chips were good. Well worth a visit.

Delicious light batter and skin free light flavoursome Haddock Fillets accompanied by crisp very generous portions of chips. Cooked the traditional way in beef dripping. Yum!

Great food and really good value for money. The staff in the chippy are very helpful and advised me of a short cut back to our campsite.

Excellent food. Only critique is that too many chips! (not the worst complaint) We went with 5 suppers and only 3 with chips. Still too many for us I'm afraid. Everyone enjoyed the fish or scampi. Will definitely be back

Have eaten here many times, and they serve lovely haddock, and have good portions. Cooked to order so you might have to wait a little but worth it. Recommended.

Excellent cod and chips. The cod's were so big they wouldn't fit in the box. We had cod and chips for 3 and had enough chips left over for at least two other people! But the fish took up most of the plate!
