Nice airy restaurant. Loved the upstairs sitting area. The service was quick; however, the food could do with some refinements. The fish cakes were a bit stodgy while the Cider Battered Scottish Salmon Fillet was bland. The sweet potato fries were excellent.

Hi Ben, GF is an increasing part of our food offer. We have separate equipment and frying pan for the fish n chips, plus GF desserts, bread and condiments. Plus Coeliac Society accreditation, one of only a dozen or so chippie in U.K to hold that. See you again soon. Regards Tony More

This is a great Fish and Chip restaurant. The food is excellent and the staff lovely. We were made very welcome and looked after like old friends. Have often had take-away fish and chips before and know the quality is always good but this was the first time we ate in the restaurant itself. Would highly recommend to all visitors.... More
