This has to be the best fish and chip shop in the area, the fish are enormous and the chips are well cooked and the servers are people friendly.

I like chips so I thought I should probably go get some, and that's what I did. I then stumbled into this place and had a darn good meal but then I realised I don't like chips so I got ride of them. Threw them in a women's face.
