The fish quality goes up and down, from beautiful to Ok at worst. The chips seem to be on the smaller size but still very tasty. I always try to get the lunch time special that finished at 2.30 I think. The staff are always friendly, just wish their was one on my doorstep and not over two miles away.

We were greeted by a very friendly male employee who made us feel very welcome. I had the haddock and chips with garlic mayo. It was simply delicious... More

My lunchtime companion does,however enjoy good fish and chips,so we made a return visit. First impressions always are important and the sit in outlet ( which we paid the visit to ), sets a... More

Visited the take-out today. I ordered two sausages same as my brother. The sausages were priced at 95p each. After waiting for 15 minutes (with no explanation to why it took so long) we opened up the food in the shop and were completely shocked to find there was two sausages in the same packet with literally 6 chips (yes...

There are very few places I will recommend. Without hesitation I recommend Cafe Fish! You have to wait - but who wants cooked food reheated?

Run by a close-knit family, this restaurant and take away are my go to for fish and chips. All fried fresh to order. This place has bags of character, especially the owners Paul and Gabby. Staff are second to none.
