Fish freshly prepared. Cheap and cheerful but always tasty. Good place if you are in a hurry. Mugs of tea readily available. Nothing flashy about this place.

Delicious fish and chips. Friendly staff and quick service. Best at busy times to order by phone and pick up.

Love this plaice! Best fish and chips for miles. Always a queue, but always worth it. Goujons are wonderful, very meaty haddock and chips are lovely. Would recommend for functions too. (Quiz nights etc)
