Fish and chips bought for £7.50 not the cheapest but what you would expect for a sea front. Coastal town and the fish was tasteless and watery, chips were ok but not amazing . I will not go again.

£7.50 for the worst fish and chips I have eaten. Fish want cod despite ordering cod. Slow service and not even a smile. Wouldn’t go again
