We have visited Dave's Diner several times now, and have never been disappointed. The portion sizes are generous, the fish and chips are always fresh and cooked well and the staff are friendly and welcoming.

If you want traditional fresh fish and chips, this is the place to go. Good food and lovely service. No nonsense and straightforward. Enjoyed it very much.

Myself and my partner have had take away cod + chips from here twice now and both visits have been spot on. The fish is fresh and chips have that nice crisp to them. Wouldn't fault them for the money really and would certainly go back again for more.

The fish i was given (Cod) was not fresh tasted like it had been frozen too long i'm a former trawlerman i know these things, chips were ok. I can go to my local chippy in Manchester and get served fish 10 times... More

We were really impressed with the friendly staff and being able to eat your takeaway inside the front of the shop which is a really good idea too!
