We often use this chippie. It's better than cooking once a week. Everything is cooked while you wait, so is really fresh.

Everything is freshly cooked to order - so expect a bit of a wait. Staff are friendly and very happy to please.

The chips are tasty, though rather pricey. The service more disappointing - usually delivered at a snail's pace. In short, great chips, shame about some of the staff.

We stopped by here after a long day of sightseeing. The fish was cooked while we waited and it was wonderful; one of our favorite places of our trip.

Nice chip shop. Clean and efficient with great food. One of the better chip shops in the area. A little on the pricey side hence 4 stars but to be fair, most chippies are now days.

Im super critical of almost all food, but this was amazing. The mini cod & chips is the perfect portion size for the smaller appetite. But the chips were at least double if not triple cooked. Cod pieces were fresh and tasty. The batter was great nice and crispy not soggy and full of oil. Highly recommend this place for... More

This place was highly recommended by the staff at the Old Market Place and because of their great hospitality we couldn't pass it up. Food was superb. Staff great and friendly. I would most certainly say 5 stars and the cleanliness was also 5 stars.
