Visit Date :  9th April 2017

This restaurant was added recently to my list to visit, and was visited just as fast as it was added.

I am not that big on fish and chips, I normally order a Haggis Supper or Sausage Supper if I get anything from the Chippie.

I did see they did other dishes so I knew I would find something on the menu that would be good to order.

First Impressions :

On entering the first thing you see is where they cook the food, and instantly hit with tone of amazing smells and visual delights.

We were shown upstairs to our table.

Upstairs is a very cosy environment, as you can see from the photos above. I would have liked to have been seated next to the window, but at the time I visited they were all occupied.

Main :

The Fish Burger £ 9.95
Breaded cod goujons stacked high with onion rings, calamari rings, and tartare sauce.

I decided to order the fish burger, that way I could try some fish and also taste the chips.

I started trying the chips, they come without any salt on them and freshly made. They were very nice without any salt, and they were nice with salt so I was very impressed with them.

The burger was a mouthful, it was very nice but I found it to be very dry. I had to put sauce on it and keep putting it on, it was nice but that was the only issue I had.

The onion and calamari rings were amazing, normally not a fan of onion rings as they come back on me and they are too strong but these were amazing.

Overall :

Overall my first visit was good, I enjoyed the food and the atmosphere.

I don’t think I would have the fish burger again, I would try something else on the menu.

See you soon.
