This fish and chip shop used to be good. For some reason it is now very poor value. The food we bought at the weekend comprised grey over cooked fish and stale tasting chips. We would not go back again. Terrible.

We came here today very busy. Seemed well organised efficient and food was quick. The food was more than enough filling and plentiful. The prices were very good too. Definitely go back.
