Great food, mushy peas were a particular highlight 💜 Crispy chips, perfect in a barn cake and I’m told good quality and delicious cod!

I have been a customer of Nick the Fish for years and have never been disappointed. The fish is never oily, the batter is beautiful and crispy and the chips are the best.

Ordered through deliveroo. Didn't tell you what salad was in the burger, burger had no sauce. No salt and vinegar on chips. Pretty disappointing

Although I only had chips and curry sauce (something I miss living abroad), it was sublime. This Christmas holiday, when I visit again, I shall be going for the whole thing, cod, chips, mushy peas and curry sauce - can't wait!!!

Top rate on Quality - Quantity and Service. The restaurant is always very busy but no matter how rushed they are the staff are very attentive - nothing is too much trouble and the food is always produced in the same excellent way.

Cooked fresh to order. Excellent value with lovely smiley staff. Parking can be a bit of a problem but that’s hardly the chippys fault.
