Horrible staff, I have nothing bad to say about the food when we visited but the staff weren't nice in the slightest. Not just one but several. Not a smile, please, thank you. Seemed to be enjoying each others company but when speaking to customers had no life in them at all.

There was no heating we were absolutely freezing...December and only half the building heated, the half we were told we couldn't sit. The place could do with a refurb as it... More

The meal is as good as it gets! The right amount of freshness juxtaposed to the reality of a mid-range price

We called one night last week for a takeaway. Shop was empty. We had to wait for two fish to be cooked. We received the smallest portion ever and not very cheap. I nearly asked where the rest was. Fish tasted very fishy like it had been around a while. Will not go again.

We have visited this restaurant before and always enjoyed our food. We went for lunch on Sat 22nd October. There was quite a wait for our food to arrive which we remarked was surprising as it is also a fish and chip shop. The food was very greasy and the chips were hard and didn't taste fresh, My husband could... More
