Friendly welcome and fast service in a clean and pleasant atmosphere. A very good selection on the menu but we all decided on fish and chips and were not disappointed. There was also some very tempting desserts but we were too full to try them.

First time here tonight and this is amongst the best fish and chips I’ve ever had anywhere. Beautiful, light batter, perfectly cooked. Proper curry sauce and mushy peas. We ate the lot and were presently surprised when the friendly and efficient waiting staff came round with a free chip refill (they’re good too), which came in handy for mopping up the curry sauce. We’ll definitely be back. Chuffed that our mate has moved to the area!

This was my second visit and it was excellent(as was my first). I had Plaice and chips and my daughter had a child's chicken nuggets and chips. Fish was fresh and delicious and the nuggets were good quality chicken breast chunks. It is a regular treat for my family as it is there favourite place to eat. I look forward to my next visit and would highly recommend it to others.

This is a fantastic fish and chip shop.
Quality of staff and food unbelievable.
Restaurant itself spotless and well decorated.
We went at 1.30pm extremely busy but seated within 10minutes.
If you want fish and chips as they used to be visit the pelican.
