Friendly welcoming staff, always busy but everything is cooked fresh while you wait & it never takes too long. Famous for their deep fried mars bar.

Returned this evening, and wasn't disappointed. The fish was fresh, the batter and chips cooked to perfection. I eat a lot of fish and chips, and have yet to be let down by this place.

Walked in at 8.50pm for takeaway food, was not acknowledged by staff when we entered and then when we were we're informed at bang on 9pm that they had turned the friars off and that they only had chips left. Would have expected better service....More

Usually go to another fish & chip shop. Decided to give this one a try. Chips were OK but on the oily/floppy side. Fish was quite good.
