Used to be good for fresh fish but now they never have any! Just bought first ever serving of Fish & Chips. Butter Fish was disgusting and chips average at best.

Also a great place for those lazy warm evenings where you can buy great fish and chips and sit outside on the little tables to eat them. Excellent service too.
