Perhaps the reputation Hanburys has raised our expectations but both times we were a little disappointed. Try Cobbleys chip shop on Belgrave Road - Fresh Fish everyday and friendly personal service which we... More

Good evening, I do find Trip Advisor Guidelines a slight joke as they allow reviews to mention competitors within reviews.

A good chip shop with a comfortable restaurant next door, service can be a little slow in the summer, owing to good advertising, mostly based on previous chip shop awards, and holiday trade.The portions are not huge and the price is restaurant style even in the shop. Other local shops have food just as tasty with better potions and better... More

Restaurant or take away, always perfect, you have to wait a while as fish is always cooked fresh to order. Worth the wait.

Excellent takeaway & eat in resturant. Good service in resturant. Takes about 10-15 wait if ordering takeaway as it's all cooked fresh.
