Fish chips and mushy peas best ever had couldnt eat it all, the cod would have been 4 fillets where I live, def Yorkshire portions, well worth it. Service very good, staff friendly, polite and helpful. Good range on menu and proper fresh fish.

The steps were up to the restaurant which was closed due to the fire. Not sure if that's reopened yet. The takeaway section is on pavement level.
