Disgusting frozen fish in batter. Poorly cooked. Shop bought frozen chips. All for the three of us and that came to £24!! Service was appallingly slow considering there was no one else here (that should have been a sign!). Not recommended!

£24 for 3 lots of (oven cooked) fish and burnt chips. Staff talk to you like you aren't there then take ages. Obviously struggling to open the Iceland packaging. Would never come again.
