Having regularly eaten fish & chips in Grimsby for many years, we thought we'd give this long standing restaurant a try on our visit to Boston. We're actually sat outside as I write this!

Classic English fish and chips superbly cooked. In my opinion they are better eaten out of the wrapped covered in vinegar! You can eat inside and its always busy as its SO good!

When you've lived in skegness most of your life your standard in fish and chips is high lol. For Boston it's not bad. Pricey for what you get. Myself I'd probably travel down the road.

Cannot understand the... More
