Visited mid week had originally tried Top Shop but that was closed. Ordered several portions of fish and chips. The large chips were a good. size portion for 2 however they were only just cooked. The fish had a lovely light batter but was quite small for the price.

Nice to visit a chippy that serves Haddock in preference to Cod. All well prepared and served in takeaway cartons.

I wish I had read the reviews before we eat here. Worst fish and chips we've ever had. Managed to eat half but only because we were so hungry and didn't have time to find somewhere else.
