Visited just before Christmas after avoiding the place for a while. Not much improvement since my November visit. Is it a cheaper vegetable oil that is causing the fish to taste strange? Soggy batter again i'm afraid. Don't like money to be handled by the staff serving the food, in fact I think that breaks Hygiene Regulations. This is my... More

New shop, still as busy, but a shame they didn't put consideration in to the long queue's. Now having a gazebo on the entrance to keep some customers dry. Forget the eat in, let us queue inside, or build a porch, there's room!

I have 3 chip shops near my house but I drive to Dodworth as Shaws are so nice. They are consistently good - and I love the new shop.

Came here to get some fish & chips for the family, straight and simple they were very good, as good as they've alas been. Portion size was very good, more chips than I could manage. Service was fast, we just beat the massive rush so we was in and out. These negative reviews about soggy batter, I don't know where... More

Shaw's fish and chips were absolutely excellent before they moved premises to Dodworth Road. The scale of the operation is much larger now. I have had soggy batter and weird tasting fish on two occasions.The shop tends to be left for others to manage and the quality of the fish and chips has deteriorated over the last month or so....

I went there based on the good reviews, the staff bar one were excellent and very polite. The food on the other hand, the chips were okay nothing special and not all were cooked thoroughly, my partner got fish and he said although it was nice he has had better. I hope it was an off day

We travelled to Barnsley from Sunderland for the day and looked up fish shops on trip advisor, and this shop had great reviews. After getting good news we decided to visit and was not disappointed. Not too oily, large size bread bun and nice place to sit. Queues were building while there so popular locally too. Great way to celebrate
