Disappointing - lack lustre service, overcooked, dry cod in poor batter; no wonder the restaurant only had 3 customers at 13:00 on a Friday.

Dropped in here as it was the only take away open at this time of evening, general chippy but with tables and chairs, good food and service good.

We wanted to treat our young son during his birthday outing, as he loves fish and chips, but ended up leaving before we ordered. Our son has a serious peanut allergy so, naturally, we check with management in every place we eat at. Thankfully, most places are good and comply with legal requirements by having the required documentation and being... More

Chips decent but the portions were tiny. Still hungry after finishing. Did not like the way the chef was shouting at the staff in the restaurant (who were all pleasant) He was rude, arrogant & abusive.

Always good service , nothing negative to say , all options on menu have always been available. Sit down or take out and pop over the road to the park

I asked for a large chips and was given what seems more like a small. £2.50 not well spent! Staff seem unimpressed with having to serve customers and have an attitude towards you.

Asked for cod and chips on a Friday night, was told we could have small cod or regular haddock! We went for one of each, cod was dry and chips were barely warm. Worst fish and chips I had for ages, we fed most of it to the birds in the park opposite!

Take away or eat in this is a good standard chippy with prices that you would generally pay at local chippies but the eat in prices are slightly higher than the take away prices however everytime I have visited this place it is busy so it is a popular place to eat.
