I went a few years ago and it was not very good but rumour had it that it was now the best chippy around so tried it again. What a mistake!! Service extremely slow. Staff not very pleasant. Chips rubbish. What more can I say.

When we walk around the lake, we normally call in and get chips to take out, which were always tasty, so today we decided to try the restaurant. Quite small inside, and a little bit basic/cafe style. Service was friendly and efficent...and the fish and chips were SUPERB. Lovely chunky white haddock, and chips cooked to perfection. The only slight... More

After a walk around Hollingworth Lake we often, I actually mean always, call in for something be that fish and mushy peas or chips and curry sauce. This place is always busy but well worth the wait. Highly recommended.

We popped in for a late lunch & enjoyed the best fish & chips ever. The fish batter was so light yet crispy, the fish was perfectly cooked yet still moist. Highly recommended.

Freshly cooked fish, excellent batter and great tasting chips with mushy peas of course. I'm not local so came across this place by chance at the start of a long drive back to South Wales, what a find. Highly recommended and happy belly :)
