I popped in to pick up a snack for my wife, mum and myself. £9.10 more than filled us up. Excellent service from Theo and the lovely lady who's name escapes me. Many thanks from Mansfield Edd. X

Recommended to me by the lads at work who all go, amazing food evreytime with fantastic service to boot (and the added bonus of doing gluten free). My favourite is the 'whale', no idea what fish it is, but it's fantastic.

I've never been to a fish and chip establishment quite like this. It's special in so many ways. The serving staff, 'the girls', are incredible; always efficient and work well under pressure - and believe me, this place is so busy, the pressure is high. And the reason it's always busy? Because the food is without equal. It's cooked expertly... More

Moved to Kirkby recently and been here a few times now. Management and staff are top class, very helpful and top banter too. Keep up the good work and add a delivery option soon!

Well I read how good the food was so tried it. Had a 12 mile round trip but was well worth it. Great service spotless clean and the food was absolutely fabulous. The best fish I have tasted outside Whitby. Will certainly return. Well done Leo and your team. Thanks the Tibshelf lads.
