Landlord Bill certainly knows his cod and believes there are four secrets to serving the very, very best fish & chips.
1. Source the finest Icelandic cod
2. Coat the fish with rice cones not flour
3. The batter mixture must be just right (his secret recipe)
4. The oil right must be at the perfect temperature
Open everyday for lunch & dinner.
