Don't waste your hard earned money at this chippy, was served raw food here a while ago, decided give it another go thinking it may have been a one off, i was wrong! Was served the the same again. I really dont know how they're still in business with the utter rubbish they serve up in there.

Always fresh. Fish is kept on ice but never frozen. Spotlessly clean. Staff friendly. Can be sometimes hard to park and sometimes you have to queue up but it's always worth waiting for a quality product. I go here at least once a month

This is a good chippy which we've been to a few times. Their rag puddings and fish are very nice, curry isn't nice though. It's a little expensive and not the biggest portions, but the food is tasty. Wish they were open longer.

Normally very nice, but got home today to find half my fish was missing! The girl put salt and vinegar on, so must have noticed but said nothing - very disappointing.

Try the Fish without batter it melts in your mouth, and the rag pudding is excellent. More chips than you can eat, great value
