Had gluten free fish and chips today….. best fish and chips I’ve ever had only had to wait a couple of minutes for it to be cooked fresh…. amazing
Very fair prices and portion sizes. Great seats outside by the River
Great portion size. Easy, relaxed atmosphere and everything was just right, even the Rijo coffee in lovely glass cups! It was a fair drive from home but really worth the effort and will be going again 😋
The staff were incredibly polite and friendly, the food was top notch, I just had a large cod and it was excellent. I will be back and will recommend to others
Best mushy peas I’ve ever had. Fish was tasty, batter was lovely and not greasy. Great value for money. Best chippy I’ve been to in the area.
Cod is second to none. This is definitely our preferred fish and chip restaurant. Pleasant staff and surroundings. Spotless.
Fish and chips worth a trip!
