Kennedys is located at the mid part of goswell road .Parking a bit tight but worth the effort. Large open restaurant serving top quality fish and chips. Staff always friendly and apart from a Friday it is easy to get a table. Highly recommended.

Good food and good service at a very reasonable price. You will not beat this for traditional fish and chips. In addition, try the pies. Salad always an option to chips. A bit short on starters and desserts, but what is on offer is good....More
