We have not used this chippy for a long time due to a poor reputation. Well things are much better these days as we found out today, after some friends had recommended it. Good value for money, served in a box and not soggy or...More

On our last visit in 2016 we were disappointed. However there seems to be a change at this well known fish and chip shop. This time the fish and chips were back to the quality as previous. Freshly cooked and a large menu but specializing...More

Been going here for years! Lovely chips. Reasonably priced! Great location to buy your chips on the way Preston Beach. Friendly staff. Their home made fish cakes are a must buy

Well worthwhile and, assuming you can find a seat as it is so popular, take the time to eat in. Dazzling array of fish to chose from (and other items) excellent service, great value. First visit but not my last.

Great fish and chips. Lovely service. I would highly recommend however if wanting to sit on a Friday/Saturday then I would recommend pre-booking. The takeaway is also very busy so expect a little wait.

Depending on what you prefer, you can ask to have your food wrapped in paper or placed in boxes. As long as you let the staff know, they have always been willing from my experiences

you are allowed dogs, if they are quite big and loud they ask that you sit on the takeaway side. Small dogs that are quiet are welcome in the restaurant area especially when it is not overly busy
