Have recently bought fish and chips from here, on first occasion chips were not very good, greasy, pale and soggy - thought it might have been a 'one off', however, on the second occasion they were just the same. Fish was reasonably OK. Won't bother...More

Friendly staff and good produce with a brisk trade. A bit pricy but justified by the quality and location. Would recommend a visit

Plenty of chips and friendly service. Unfortunately the chips were not crisp but claggy and stuck together. As we only bought chips we were unable to comment on the fish. We have since read by another reviewer, that the chips may have been fried in...More

Very tasty, with generous portions. Takeaway or eat-in in their small restaurant (no booking needed.) We've eaten there several times and it's always reliably good.
