Never been in since last year but it has had a make over even better, nicely painted colours. Fish and chips are great and the staff in their new uniform look great, they are very friendly and helpful. They are so busy and none stop.

Ordered fish and chips. Not a good portion for the price. Chips not the best very pale. The fish batter not crispy but greasy and the mushy peas I wouldn't bother with at all.

If we decide to have a ‘sit down’ fish supper then this is our regular haunt. We’ve been going for many years now and it never fails to disappoint. We’re not that adventurous I’m afraid and mainly order cod or haddock with an occasional battered sausage(!) but it’s always delicious with perfect chips and mushy peas. The price has gone up slightly but it’s still fantastically priced for a big plate of scran. Can’t wait for our next trip!

Something has happened since our last visit. There was one member of staff who was friendly. The rest seemed tired, distracted, unengaged. We were waved to a table without a greeting . We were served quickly but really expected some smiles it makes a big difference. Something has changed with the food.. the batter was a bit flat and not as well cooked as previous visits. We will return.... But this was NOT a good day for us. On the plus side the restaurant has had a bit of a make over and looked nice and clean and fresh.

We often have visitors and always try to take them up the beautiful coast.
For traditional Fish and Chips this is our restaurant of the choice.
There is often a queue but don't let that put you off. It's worth the short wait.
Once inside the service is as expected, efficiency personified.
This is the best fish and chips ever. I always opt for the curry sauce whilst my Wife is keen on the mushy peas
We are in our early 60s and the fare is as authentic as I remember as a child.
The fish is fresh with crispy batter and the chips "chunky" and both cooked to perfection
Can't comment on the rest of the menu because I have never passed the signature dish.
Always busy, the also have a takeaway annex equally popular
No better place for this traditional English dish. We will be back soon
