I went there with the young ones for a late lunch. Menu is very extensive, food was nice but the prices they charge is a bit in the high side for what is basically a sit in chip shop. Service, cleanliness was faultless but what caught my eye was a charge of 30 pence for a glass of tap water... More

Ordered 3 fish teas. The fish was covered in a pale mush of unrecognisable "batter". We asked the waitress what kind of fish was it as it was a greyish piece of nastiness. She replied either haddock or cod and asked if we were not enjoying it as one of her regulars had also complained about her fishq. Although the... More

We visited for breakfast early one morning (around 9.30am). We were shocked to walk in and find fish and chips ready to serve if anyone wanted them! At 9.30am?! We ordered the large breakfast which came extremely quickly... obviously because everything has been deep fried - even the sausages! I'd say it's all very 'average' unless you are a lover... More

Looking for breakfast and Starfish had a great choice ended up with a starfish bap and a cuppa all for just £3.50! Bap was stacked high with link sausage, bacon, egg, tattie scone and for those of us black pudding. Scrumptious!

Went to the Starfish with some friends, not keen but they were drunk and I was dragged in. Served by the owner himself and I must admit - it was brilliant and the difference was like chalk and cheese to my first time. The chips were hot and perfectly cooked and the fish and batter were even better. Service was... More
