The staff were super friendly and helpful but the food was dreadful. The chips were soggy as was the under cooked batter on the very un fresh fishy cod.

seems to be a tradition in appledore to grab soem fish n chips and sit on the quay and eat them, you wont be disappointed by the fish and portion size here, although there can be long queues in summer time.
