We enjoyed two separate takeaway visits. Enjoyed our Fish and Chips Supper maybe just a little bit on the greasy side. Absolutely loved the Jumbo Sausage and Chips cooked to perfection ! Recommend this takeaway to others visiting the town.

Your review raises the question as to why you accepted food which was not to your liking. If you had returned it, we would have given you a full refund or something else in its place.

Stopped off in the town and found the two lads working hard working to supply the best fish supper for the area, cooked to order they sell haggis if you want it

Could have been 5 stars if fish batter had been bubblier and crispier. Fish white and tasty. Other equally good menu choices chicken etc. all reasonably priced. Staff friendly.

This has to be the best fish and chip shop in the area, the fish are enormous and the chips are well cooked and the servers are people friendly.

Everything cooked from fresh, which you don't mind waiting for good service, clean and really fresh produce. Take away cups of tea and coffee means you can pop down to the lochside to enjoy
