I have placed an order for skate and chips. The service provided by the attendant was prompt and efficient. The fish was freshly prepared upon ordering, and the overall quality of the fish and chips was highly satisfactory. 👍

What a shame they don't have a restaurant. The best rock eel and chips, I have enjoyed, in a long time. We sat at a table outside and had to eat with a wooden fork. (I will take some cutlery next time).
