Really impressive portion sizes for the price and a great example of proper English fish and chips! Good views of the seafront too from the upstairs section. The inside is pretty dated but still comfy.

Definitely recommend the famous 🐟 and 🍟. Really batter and potatoes. We were inside so it was cooler. We knew it was going to be good judging by how busy it was both inside and outside. Would go again to try their other dishes.

The famous fish pan has a restaurant and also takeaway. Customer service is faultless and does fantastic food. Prices are reasonable. Location is perfect as it's right on the seafront.

Small portion of dry haddock. Some uncooked batter on the inside. Chips a bit dry with some green and brown potatoes used.

Lovely chips, unfortunately the fish was a tad burnt, there's that many fish and chip shops in the area I will try somewhere new next time. Would also rather have proper forks not tiny wooden ones. Love the curry sauce
