If you are craving traditional British food, this is the place to go to. The flagship food is obviously fish 'n' chips, and it was great to see that the place offered sides of mashed peas. They also have the option of mashed potatoes, as...More

The fish and chips sold here are not even remotely comparable to the authentic fish and chips sold in England. I had such high expectations however I was bitterly disappointed. Chips were soggy and the fish tasted of oil. I do not recommend this place...More

Had lunch. Had cod and plaice with chips along with onion rings and mushrooms. 1/2 bottle of donnafugata cost us €10! A rip off. Fast food comes at a price nowadays. Will not be back.

Had one cod, one haddock , 2 chips 1 mushy peas. The fish batter was nothing special infact I didn't enjoy it that much. The chips though was to die for! At least d menu has a quite a variety.

I chose cod and chips and was presented with a very generous portion that was delicious. It's more of a takeaway-type shop although it does have seating, but definitely will revisit!
