Popped in for a takeaway on Friday evening. Ordered a battered cod with the gluten free batter. Staff were very knowledgable about coeliac disease and the risk of contamination and I was able to see that my fish was kept entirely separate at all times and I even heard a staff member asking for the 'gluten free tongs' lol which...

Just popped in on our way back from Lisburn town centre. A lovely bag of chips. Close to a petrol station and supermarket with plenty of parking available.

Great place for fast fish n chips or fried steak bap. They serve mushy peas as sides which adds a uniqueness to the meal. People were friendly up at the counter and answered all my questions when I was asking about some to the menu items.

Ordered a cod supper. Didn't have to wait too long at all and we were quite impressed with the fish, nice delicate batter not too heavy and chips well cooked. I wouldn't normally review a take away like this but having happily munched through my half of the fish and chips I noticed a pubic hair on a chip!!!! Disgusting... More
