Not a bad chippy, just a little bit pricey for what is was. At just under 9 pounds, I got cod, chips and mushy peas. The fish was a little disappointing as it was made up of lots of batter and not too much cod. The chips had quite a few ends in there. The best thing was the mushy peas. Absolutely delicious.

All in all, not a bad place to visit and my lowish score is probably a result of...more
