Friendly, courteous, cheerful staff. Food hot and cooked to perfection especially the hake which is out of this world. Generous portions, best chippy in the North of England.

I have been coming to this chippy since I was 11 years old (now 33) and in my time I have worked here. I still travel from Birmingham for the same meal. The friendliest staff serving the best food! Always feel like family coming round for tea!
