Cod was nice in fairness, peas too, good presentation but the chips were overdone and greasy, wouldn't go back in a hurry.

While in town recently at night with a friend we came accross the Fish Hatch. We were delighted to see the chef's serving up the fish and chips. There was a que and a bit of a wait but it was worth it. The fish was well cooked and tasty. The chips were delicious. They were reasonably priced.

Went here twice giving it the benefit of doubt and regretted my decision. On both occasions, by the time I made it home (5mins) the food was cold and had to put it in the oven to warm up. The fishcakes lacked flavour and the chips were only ok. The only thing I can really complement is the packaging which... More

This place seems to have a name that it doesn't really live up to. Being connected to the Imperial Hotel, I expected a crispy, flaky batter, and fluffy, crisped chips. What I got was a soggy fillet of fish, and slightly soggy, possibly underdone chips. Will not be returning.

I have eaten here a number of times when I have had to work late. The quality of the fish and chips is excellent and the service is polite and very quick. I had hake and the batter was nice and light, not overly oily. Couldn't fault it.

Food was lovely, but shame about the old people that work there! They were extremely rude and did not have very good personal skills. Due to this rudeness, I will not be visiting again.
