Delicious fresh fish and chips. Crisp batter and lovely chips. You can sit in and have the full works of fish and chips with mushy peas. Bread and butter and pot of tea. It isn't a big place to sit and can feel claustrophobic!!

There is more than one chipper in town but this is the one to go to. Hence the queues. Also has a sit down restaurant attached. Recommend .

Mainly a take away but a small but functional eat-in area. Very good portions of excellent chip shop fare. Very good value and offering a complete meal (main, bread & butter and a drink) including a smaller portion size which is still generous.

Had several meals during a recent self-catering holiday. Food was hot and the fish and chips portion was enough to feed two of us.
