Lovely fish and chip meal sat inside...all freshly cooked. Only disappointment was that they only take cash which meant I had to dash out to a cash point. Not what you expect in 2018. Great food and service though

The chips were nice on a cold day, but not having card payments is only a little inconvenience. Having to walk around the corner to get money is not something customers in 2017 should have to do.

The Fish and Chips here were acceptable but not outstanding. Reasonably sized portions, nice piece of fish and mushy peas. Add a cup of tea and the price is £8:25 which is not bad local value for money. Service was friendly and efficient.

We come in here quite a lot and are never disappointed. The portions are good sized and good value. However, every time I go I ask for chicken and they never have it so I have to have something else which is quite annoying.
