Superb fish and chips with many side options a bit limited for seating and the queue can be long but worth it none the less

Went there on Sunday when they had the fireworks. Queue was long but they had an efficient system so it was somewhat bearable. Fish & chips was excellent, homemade tartare sauce was really good. Fish had 3 sizes, prices quite reasonable, 5 of us spent...More

Overpriced and full of the belief that they are better than a lot of other places. Fish was OK. Chips not good. and portions not large. They want to up their game a little. 47.5 for 6 people. I just think they are not as...More

What a great place. Take away fish and chips with seating outside. Freshly cooked. Helpful staff. Excellent quality food and they even tell you where they source the potatoes and chips from. Veggie option available too! Highly recommend!

Freshly cooked just for you each time you walk in ensures the very freshest food. Just went for the standard size fish and chips and they were the best we have had in many years. Really amazing. No seating inside but a couple of tables...More

These were the best fish and chips I've ever had! You must try them and sit by the sea to eat them (luckily we weren't bothered by seagulls), for the best taste sensation. The chippy is efficient, clean, friendly and conscious of where they source...More

It is vegetarian. I asked, no lard is used, they use sunflower oil. It is a chippy yes but a more up market one with various other options so whilst I agree is it not a restaurant it is just a really good take away.
