The fish (cod or haddock) is freshly fried, tasty and huge! The mushy peas are just the right gloopy consistency and flavour. Chips portion sizes are out of this world. Great friendly and courteous service in the shop or over the phone. Absolutely love Friday nights!

I go once or twice with my mate for lunch. we both have SF chicken breast and chips. although the chips can be a bit dry at times, which is normal for any chippy, but the sfc is always nice. The service their is incredible. they are always smiling. Defiantly recommend to any one.

I frequented this chip shop once a week, on a Tuesday or Wednesday as it was quality over quantity. However, recently it has been taken over and the standards have slipped. It was always consistent and now I don't dare go again as I find myself binning most of it. Orders are most likely wrong when brought home and the... More

Visited on a Saturday evening, the young lady that served me was very pleasant and the staff all greeted me on my entrance. Food was delicious, my husband loves the Donermeat and the chip portion was perfect for the 3 of us. Always my regular when we fancy a chippy tea. We all said how much we enjoyed it so... More

This is our chippy of choice, well worth the 2 mile drive. Service did drop a little after change of management but now back on track, huge portions.

The kebab wrap had an extra item in it that being a long hair which did not belong to any members of the family. needless... More

Tonights tea was very disappointing for all of us, it seems to have gone down hill a lot since my last visit which is a shame as I thought this was the best in the area, I am now starting to reconsider this. For a start we had ordered two fish for myself and my Dad and both were hard... More
