Always a warm welcome and a decent quality meal from Smiths. Us Northerners like our fish with the 'skin off' and we always get our wish granted without a grumble. Portion size good too

I've eaten here so many times that when we walk in the door they start cooking two haddock and bring the cokes. Lovely fish and chips and friendly, efficient staff. Always willing to cook fresh too.

Always go here as the fish is excellent and the chips old style, like when you were growing up. You can eat in or take away try the pies or savaloy, the best around.

We went for fish and chips takeaway from here a few weeks ago and it was bad - the fish was awful, definitely not cod and the chips tasted really strange. There was a weird flavouring that I couldn't work out. Anyway gave it another try tonight and immediately regretted it. The fish was watery and the chips don't taste... More
