What a wonderful little place this is. Warm and cosy on a miserly wet Bank Holiday. The staff were very helpful and attentive. The food was impressive quality with large portions. So pleased we found this on trip advisor.

If you want tasty fish and chips then this is the place to go. When I've been to eat here none of my companions have had anything less than an excellent meal.
