The chips are amazing, the location is Great, staff is a bit snotty because they get the business anyway and don’t rely on return customers. Everything is very basic but they know how to charge.

A British breach on a sunny summers day - what could be better😎🌞 Surprisingly busy for mid week pre school holidays and the ‘baby boomer’ generation were certainly in the majority- including us!
