They offer vegetarian options! The starting product may be vegatarian but the end product, described as vegetarian, is anything but as it is cooked in beef dripping. These options should not be described as such if they are cooked in animal product. When I asked about the products the lady serving was quite confrontational and said that it was fine.... More

Disgusting chips over cooked made me feel sick thought I would try one, even though they looked over cooked I was hungry. Very poor you don't expect to buy food over cooked like this was, they must know what they are serving up very very poor waist of money family will not buy from there again.

Went for the large portion. Lovely chips and an enormous piece of fish. Couldn't fault it though I'll be ordering the regular size next time. Traditional and somewhat pokey seating area to the rear but it was fine. Quite a bit of parking for customers.

We had never been here before and thought we'd try it instead of going to Cousin Jacks, but it was a mistake. On arrival the staff were flapping and in a total mess, no-one knew what anyone was doing, several orders were wrong or did not even get picked up! The following week we went back and it was just...

My wife and I visited Macs last week, this was at short notice due to our planned pub venue being closed. I had a large fish and chips meal my wife had the regular all freshly cooked and as good if not better than any we have had anywhere. This is well worth a visit. Thanks to Macs.

The chips are just awesome. Not sure what they do to them but they are always just fantastic. The fish is always really fresh and cooked perfectly. We live very close and Macs is always our treat when we don't want to cook. Can't beat it in the area in our families opinion!

3 of us went. Two meals came out and it took another 8 minutes for the third meal! Dessert was frozen in the middle. Good points? Chips were lovely. Would I go back? Probably not
