Wow, this place was recommended to us if we visited Dunnottar and we were not disappointed. My husband had to queue for about half an hour but it was definitely worth it. Not cheap fish and chips but certainly delicious. There's nowhere to sit and...More

Both mains " sold out ".Just paid £5.60 for this. Hauled out of the freezer? Absolute rip off! Not at all happy.

I've tried fish and chips in England, Ireland, and several Irish places here in Boston - this place is the best. Just make sure you stand in the line for the fish and chips and not for the ice cream place next to it.

Bit of a queue to get served but well worth it. Only had the chips with cheese but was very nice and was a reasonable price.

My family and I had a dinner with fish and chips and it was very good. My daughter liked it very much. I recommended especially for family with children or for an easy dinner.

It is vegetarian. I asked, no lard is used, they use sunflower oil. It is a chippy yes but a more up market one with various other options so whilst I agree is it not a restaurant it is just a really good take away.
