We visited whilst family were staying with us and had a really great meal which was well cooked and of good size. The services received was excellent.

Drove to a local beauty spot to share our fish and chips but what a disappointment. The chips were obviously not freshly cooked. They were very dry and hard. Small fish portion. £6.25 for a meal half eaten. Not good value.

Called here a couple of times for a fish supper. Always very busy . Recommend that you order ahead. Food good. Not been in the restaurant part, that’s always busy too.

Lovely traditional fish and chips. Batter crispy and fish very fresh. Staff super friendly and helpful. Home made deserts and they have a licence if you want a tipple. Will be heading back here for sure!
