We have had fish and chips here more than once and each time the quality is very high. Consistency is one of the measures of a good fish and chip shop and this one certainly achieves this. Both cod and chips and haddock and chips...More

I had the Haggis supper, which came with chips. It was absolutely delicious and filling. The staff too were friendly and efficient. My food arrived on my table in no time. Definitely recommended!

I was recommended this place as one of the best in Glasgow. Sorry it couldn't be further from the truth. Whilst the staff are great and very friendly the food was very disappointing. Chips looked as if they had been residing for a while and...More
