The staff are very friendly and the food is simply delicous (well more so when stephen crosby-senior- is doing the frying.) the prices are reasonable and the shop is situated next to the harbour so eat in or take your chips out and stroll along the beautiful harbour either way Crosbys is simply the best fish and chip shop in the town!!!
