Ate upstairs and the food was very good and the service friendly and helpful, however very disappointed with the setting. Have eaten here before and this time found the table and table mats dirty and the cutlery needed wiping - it all felt very grubby.

This place does a fab take away service but this time we went upstairs and into the restaurant. As usual great food and the service was excellent, beware large portions!

Have had fish and chips many times here. They are delicious. Fish portions are large which is great as I prefer that to too many chips.

Dont order large chips with your fish coz you get a small portion of chips and your fish fills the box. Order small bag of chips and you get same amount so save your pennies.

Can well understand about all the good reviews for this though I guess there's not that much competition around which is understandable, why would you open another place when this one is so strong! Great dinner for a passing visit

Went there and got off full happy and with the best fish and chips since a long time. We sat outside with the quay in sight and had haddock medium with chips and tartar sauce. Price very moderate for good quality.

Portions were very large and chips did not taste greasy. Friendly on phone order. Fish was delicious and fresh and chicken nuggets for kids meal was decent. Always has queues around dinner time so best to call ahead. Would recommend.
