Must say this is one of the worst fish suppers i have had in Scotland. being a harbour area expected better. The paper was full of grease and tasteless. Drove straight past it a few times wish I had done the same again.

Popped in for a special fish and a sausage. Didn't have to wait long for the food, it was fresh and hot. Very enjoyable, best chippie we've had in a long time. Decent price and friendly service. Would visit again.

Description
Fish & Chip restaurant looking out over the harbour while you eat. Traditional fish and chip dishes are served such as fish, sausages, chicken, haggis and deep fried pizza. However, we also serve our exclusive 'BLAGGIS' which is both haggis and black pudding battered together and another popular dish is our sweet chilli haggis. In our restaurant we also serve a small selection of salads, macaroni, chicken curry, lasagne and also hot and cold drinks. We also have the option to take away which is around the corner.
