Went here for supper and it was first class, sat in and had the Fish Tea, which gives you a fish supper, choice of mushy peas, beans and comes with tea/coffee and bread and butter for £8.75. The staff were very friendly, polite and helpful. The food was first class, perfectly cooked fish, lovely batter and great chips. Nothing greasy, all just as you would want it. Great value and well worth a visit, the takeaway which is adjacent would be well worth it also.

Thank Graham S

Called in for a portion of chips- first and last visit.

I asked for a large portion of chips, and I asked if I could have them wrapped and not in a tray please (trying to stop unnecessary packaging). Was given a price by a young, un-smiley young man. I asked was that the largest, " yes" came the reply, if you don't want a tray, We do a larger portion, but in a tray.

I asked if I could have the same portion but in paper or a bag, you can measure in the tray and then place in a bag and its saving the shop money too as you can re use the tray
.
The un-smiley young man did not reply, " oh madam I am sorry we cannot do that", or "oh yes no problem at all" (which is what I was expecting as the customer) and didn't think I was asking for anything too left fields,....

The response was just an emphatic and unfriendly, "NO".

No customer service at all - I realise that the tray may have been made from recycled material, but by asking for wrapped or in a bag, I didn't think this was an unreasonable request... I will not be returning

Excelllent food , cooked while you wait. Tastes delicious . Staff friendly . Only complaint on last visit two members of staff were being told off, felt this was not good in front of customers , should have been disciplined outwith customers hearing. The visit was on a Monday a few weeks ago.

Great little find in Peeble. Friendly staff, quick service and nice atmosphere to the restaurantish area of the fish and chip shop.

I would have loved to give it a 5 star but the food was a little shy of expectations.

On asking for my sausage to be battered, it ended up been very soggy. Not what you think you mucky buggers, that's the lady at no. 3

Just buy a little better quality sausages and cook the chips for a tad longer and it's a 10 from Len.
