Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We stopped in here and grabbed takeaways for dinner. Probably the nicest fish and chips we have had in ages. good value for money, not a great range of fish to choose from but that probably cant be helped. Very nice thank you.

Yes the portions were enormous and not too expensive but I felt they were too greasy and the battered fish were soaked in oil. Did the job for our dinner but that's about it.

We were full from our burger, fish, oysters and chips and milkshakes. Just a note to make sure the milkshakes use cold milk as it wasn't cold, but other that the food was good

The food was great and the portions generous. The snapper was fresh and the chips oil free. They also over a selection of Chinese dishes. Well worth the visit.
