Recommended by the campsite we were staying at. You order, pay and then wait whilst it's cooked to order. There was a queue and a bit of a wait, but that's usual anywhere on a Friday evening. Lovely chips and the fish was very fresh.

Omg these chips are so divine. Portions are very generous. If you want medium chips choose small etc. Cone, small, medium or large portions available. Kids meals available. Good selection of other foods e.g.: sausages, pineapple fritters, pies etc.
