We have eaten in the restaurant a couple of times but mainly fish and chips to take away. We sometimes order in advance. The chips have a crunchy coating and stay like this for ages not like the limp or stale chips you get in...More

This is such an amazing chippy. The chips are super and the portions are massive. Their menu is extensive and has a good selection for vegetarians. Also has its own parking which makes it super convenient.

We've just come back from a 2 week tour of Ireland. Tried local fish and chips when we could........not a patch on Mack's! We even had "posh" fish and chips in Solihull, at Loch Fyne......nah!

They offer vegetarian options! The starting product may be vegatarian but the end product, described as vegetarian, is anything but as it is cooked in beef dripping. These options should not be described as such if they are cooked in animal product. When I asked...More

As a traditional fish and chip shop we have always fried in beef dripping. If we are asked what we fry in we always tell the customer. We do not try to fool anybody. You came in for your mother at 8.25 on a Saturday...More
