It was Christmas Light Swiitch-on night, but the staff were great, and our lovely fish was cooked in front of us. It was very good fish and the chips are great. I recommend the home-made tartare sauce!

Popped in with my son on the last day of half term and enjoyed lunch in the little seating area at the front. Food as ever was superb - meltingly fresh fish and superb chips. Service was efficient and friendly. Love this place!
