Was just about to close on a Friday Evening, everything was cooked to order, long queue but order taken as walked in, which is always a good sign, plus was full of locals, which is another! You can’t beat the Fish and Chips here!

The outside of the building doesn't do the place any justice. Lovely and very good food done fresh when you walk in

Bit surprised to find everyone bigging this place up - the fish and chips were ok - not really fantastic, but not bad. Fish was a bit thin and greasy and the chips pallid and limp. They were edible, but not deserving of the praise...More
