I have been here twice now, and although the quality is excellent, you receive very few chips if you order something "and chips". If you ask, you can get free "scraps" with your chips, a real novelty for somebody from southern England.

We came for lunch on a recommendation for fish and chips. The fish was decent, but the chips were not cooked properly and the overall experience was underwhelming. Service very slow and a bit chaotic. Decor outdated and experience geared toward a senior crowd.
