I visited with my partner for lunch and I guess it's a great Town centre venue for older people at lunch. The staff seems to know most people by first name. I wouldn't visit again as I did feel the food was a bit dry...More

I expected top rate fish and chips and instead got very average offerings. Service was fine but the food itself was blah... I had much better fish & chips at most other places in which we dined along the southern coast of England.

If we ever have fish and chips anywhere else we inevitably say - well its not Papa's. Fish is always excellent and cooked just right. Quite a nice old fashioned restaurant at the back which is also great

I wouldn’t go to any other fish restaurant. The food is always fresh and beautifully cooked. The visit is made even more enjoyable by the lovely staff - especially Thursday nights server - so friendly, helpful and efficient.

We went there during the week, but I think someone else has answered your question - that it's closed on Sundays.
