Always order from here but recently the chips and battered products are not that good. The burgers are great. But today our chips and sausage in batter were both soggy (even though looked crispy) and they tasted like the oil needed to be changed (tasted like when my mum used to make us chips in oil that had been used time and time again). Loved the burger but as a chip shop, the chips and sausage in batter should have been crispy and better cooked

I ordered tonight and they said it would be about 1 hour, which was fine, as I understand busier times, however it took 1 hour and a half. We ordered two medium chips and yet what arrived looked barely 1 small portion split between two fish boxes. When calling the young lady said she didn’t understand my complaint and put the phone down: I have been ordering from here for years and am left amiss at what has happened to this order, when quality is normally consistant every time.

Collected food but they forgot my can of tango watermelon and strawberry drink and tried to ring several times at 9:30 but no one would answer my calls but the store should still be open

The last 2 orders we have had have not been up to the usual excellent standard. The chips were stale and lukewarm (reheated from lunch time it tasted like)and the fish was lukewarm and very greasy(tasted like reheated from lunch time also) Extremely disappointing!!!

Arrived earlier which was great, however ordered large and medium rock and got 3 small pieces of rock so was disappointed as more gone than fish.

Second time in a row, chips undercooked and slightly crunchy in the middle. Not sure if there’s been a change of management but this certainly isn’t as nice as it used to be, seems to have gone down hill. Will be looking to get my fish and chips from somewhere else now. Didnt enjoy it tonight. Shame.

Peter, 17 Aug 2019

Chips were mainly undercooked and still had a potato crunch in them. Fish was nice though.

Peter, 09 Aug 2019

Arrived before they said which was great. However chips were mainly undercooked and still had a slight potato crunch. Don’t think I’ve ever experienced that with take away fish and chips before. Otherwise nice fish.
