I visited this establishment with my wife whilst in Carlisle shopping. The restaurant is very clean and modern, the staff are also very smart, friendly and helpful. The fish and chips we had were second to none and we would happily recommend to friends and family.

Very clean chip shop with friendly service. Great chips, always fresh and hot. Tables and chairs outside to use if the weather is nice. Wouldn't go anywhere else.

If you want a nice simple but high quality fish and chips and a nice clean place to eat it in I can thoroughly recommend this place. Very fast service and it does exactly what it says on the tin. Fresh fish and excellent chips. Good portions all at a sensible price. Wish we had somewhere similar close to home... More

Oh, the crispy batter! The battered fish is delicious, a lovely light batter and succulent fish. I rarely try anything other than the fish, but am sure everything else will be at the same level; I haven't heard any complaints - totally addictive!
