The quality of the fish and chips is consistently high. The fish is always delicious and the chips are properly cooked to avoid both sogginess and over crispness. Those serving are always friendly and helpful. Recommended!

This establishment was completely refurbished couple of years ago. What a brilliantly Job the owner has made of it, always spotlessly clean, the staff are most obliging and pleasant. The fish and chips served are always well presented and cooked to perfection .beautiful batter and chips ect never greasy. I fully recommend anyone to use this excellent establishment. A bonus...

Recently I placed a report about the Minnis Bay F&C shop in which I mentioned that I was going to speak to the owner about my experience (good F&C) and mention the 'eyelash/hair/brush bristle' problem with his chips. I spoke to the owner or manager today 3rd October 2014. He was slightly interested about the hair but seemed to change... More

I decided to eat in for a change with my son but was bitterly disappointed. I ordered a large cod which was lovely & white but the batter underneath was a soggy, yellow mush. When I showed the owner his only comment was 'if it was cooked any longer it would be burnt'. Strange answer & he still billed me... More

Perfect creamy textured fresh cod in light and crispy batter. Large but not a pig out. As good as fish gets. Top quality fish and cooking. Very good medium cut real chips. And enough; not a challenging pile. Not a hint of grease anywhere. Curry sauce with a bit of bite. A lightweight china mug that allowed a nice brew... More

I had been putting off trying this F&C shop because under the previous owner it was quite AWFUL, so I had used the other local shop, which is OK. Last week I tried this shop and was quite impressed and was going to go back and have a chat with the owner/manager but haven't managed it yet, so this review... More

Set in a lovely unspoilt coastal high street, this pristine modern building was immaculately clean and well laid out, serving superb fish and chips, can totally see why it was promoting the fact that it was award winning. Be warned though, we went back again on a Sunday evening and it was disappointingly closed.

Had takeaways from here several times which have varied from very good to a bit disappointing, but still probably the best fish and chips in Birchington.

A sunny day by the sea with a granddaughter and lunch time approaches and there is only one place of the front to eat. The menu is extensive but, we are vegetarians and do not eat most of which is on offer. Enquiring whether they will serve us just eggs and chips the answer was 'YES'. The meal was served... More
