The fish is always lovely at seniors as is the service, however the chips are a bit hit and miss sometimes.

I don't know how they achieve it, but the taste of their batter on any kind of fish is superb! I can best describe it as light, with a hint of sweetness. The premises are are always spotless & the staff extremely efficient. I take the opportunity to lunch there whenever I'm in the vicinity. Highly recommended.

We all had fish and chips, one large (me), two afternoon specials and two kids. A little disappointed to see the kids meals and afternoon... More

Been many times,only round the corner,but never again,once we have old chips we never return.fish nice,but both our chips old looking,and cold.the thing is anyone serving must know this,like when we had a pub,you know when the product your serving is not right,and do something about it.so chips in the bin.

We had another delicious fish supper here. A warm welcome and very tasty hot food. It is always a pleasure to eat here. I had scampi and peas and my husband had small fish, peas and chips and then a very yummy ice cream. Good value too.

I really like seniors chippy because I always think it's incredibly well run and the queuing system is very efficient. The staff are friendly and your order is never wrong! I had the cod medium meal deal which was medium cod, chips, a side and a drink for around £7 I think. For me it was way too much food... More
