Great fish and chips! Cod was very fresh and my husband, who doesn't like fish, liked this because it didn't taste fishy.

We had lunch here yesterday and the fish and chips and the steak pie were very, very nice. Madam had the cod and raved about it whilst I had the steak pie which was equally impressive. The chips were outstanding.
