Went in half hour after opening very quiet! Fish had obviously been cooked before. The batter was thick and chewy and the fish had shrivelled back inside and was like leather. Don’t go early!!!

Had fish and chips from here today and I must say they were up there with the best. What a refreshing change to have really crispy batter and chips. Not at all soggy. Everything was cooked to perfection and the guy who served me was very polite and courteous. This place is tucked away from the main road and I will be visiting again.

Freshly cooked fish and chips, take it away and eat by the sea, what more can you possibly want?!? Can be a bit of a wait but if you are reading this you are probably on holiday so slow down and be ready to enjoy!

Fish and sausage were brilliant, felt the chips were a little crispy but all cooked fresh. Service was friendly and good banter. Atmosphere is difficult to say as only 1 customer is allowed in at a time so would be frustrating if waiting outside in the rain. Great value though
