Staff hate eye contact so it takes ages to get served. Food is only cooked to order so takes ages, however at least it's hot and fresh (once you get it). Hardly ever open though.

Drop in here while passing. My expectations were low however what a find. Family run business...hard working and very friendly , had to wait for my fish cake to be cooked, crispd were fresh and nicely cooked. Reasonable prices.

We were recommended this fish & chip shop and weren’t disappointed. Cod was lovely and chips good too. We ordered for a large group of us and all were happy

Takes a while to get served but the fish and chips need more draining as they leave a very greasy taste at end of them

Numerous fast food restaurants close-by but this is the best for fresh cooked to order fish and chips My kids love it. Usual pies sausages burgers also available.

Anne and I consider ourselves fish and chip connoisseurs! We are both in our seventies and must have tried them in nearly all parts of the country. The haddock and chips here are amongst the very best we have eaten. Delicious and also great value.
