A sit down chippy is always welcome, especially on a cold autumn day. The view over the estuary was a bonus as was the exceptional table service and the friendliness of staff. The lunch was of a very high quality (fish chips mushy peas) and...More

Despite being told that nowhere would be selling 'sit down' food on Firework night we found this little gem along the front. Lovely friendly staff. Quick service and great quality and quantity. We both had the haddock and chips and well pleased with our choice.

Two adults fish and chips and two children’s meals - great service - very tasty and reasonably priced. A popular place, the queue was out the door on Friday evening! Will definitely go back next time we are in the area.

We were pleased we visited the chip shop cafe today, where we both dined on their delicious haddock, chips and mushy peas, washed down (of course) with dandelion and burdock pop. We asked for our fish 'lightly battered' and it arrived perfectly cooked soon afterwards....More

We only come once year at most. Still it's a treat we look forward to. Best haddock and even gluten free, the batter is the best. Chips large, as stated, and beautifully cooked. I used to say I came for the bird watching; it may...More

Long queue but very much worth it. Chips were top notch and not too pricey. Cannot blame the queue as it was a Saturday night but the space was quite cramped.

Not suprised it won the award! And the gluten free was the best I have ever eaten. Worth a detour, frankly it would be worth a 200 mile trip!!

The answer above from pbramham stating it is a takeaway NOT a restaurant isn't correct. The restaurant is at the front overlooking the estuary and the takeaway is behind the restaurant. You access both seperately and via... More
