It was a cold windy Monday lunchtime when I visited here in search of the excellent fish & chips I'd read about. I'd also read about (occasionally) the surly staff... With it being cold I first went to the restaurant (that sounds a bit grand, it was more like a basic cafe to be honest) but a very pleasant member... More

Bill W. Thanks for your review. I do believe when you came around lunch time our "basic cafe" was full, that says a lot in our eyes!! And if you think our establishment is basic, the food was never going to good enough anyway was it?! As for the food being bland, thats your opinion I'm sure hundreds of other... More

All that aside, we are never disappointed with the quality of the food and the staff are always friendly, particularly the nice gentleman who always remembers our order, even... More

The food was delicious but I had a wait of 40 minutes for the take away food. So start queueing way before you are hungry.

lozzyloo88 Sorry you had to wait 40 minutes but when its busy these things can't be helped. Customers don't just get a portion of chips and go, its everything else and sometimes they want food that is cooked to order. We also provide for the restaurant next door so the food in the top boxes could have been for them.... More
