Shocking.....tasteless crab sandwich on squashed sliced white bread, filling only in the middle. Sausage and chips, inferior quality sausages and think the chips must have been the ones left over....yuk!

Not the poshest restaurant but very clean. They certainly know how to cook great tasting fish and chips at a very reasonable price. The staff were cheerful and polite. I look forward to returning soon.

Thank you for your feedback. I'm not going to argue with a northerner about Gravy! (or pies)!! Thickness being a constant debate in our own household too!

Unusual setting and friendly service sitting in little booths. Best deal is the fish and chips with bread and butter and a pot of tea around £8. Excellent deal with the opportunity to eat inside or outside next to the sea.

Dropped in whilst on holiday for a fish and chip tea. Went for the sit down option and food arrived quickly after ordering. Good quality fish and lovely chips, just the right portion. Very nice
