Ate here with my family, take away fish and chips, was one of the nicest fish and chips any of us had tasted not at all greasy and the fish was very chunky and fresh tasting. Really enjoyed the food.

We’ve just been in for a fish supper and both of us thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it. This is the way fish & chips should be done.
