One of the best chippies I've been to. Me and my partner had fish, chips, curry sauce and mushy peas. We ate outside as it comes in a box; it was so good the seagulls wouldn't leave us alone. Haha

Decided to have a chip shop tea with the family. Came here. Was busy and what I like about this place is everything is cooked to order which means everything is super fresh. Lovely chips and great mushy peas.
