We're lucky enough to have Farrow's as our local chippy. They do really tasty chunky home-made chips and the best scampi in Bristol :) And you always get service with a smile.

Have lived near this shop for years but never called in. Wish I had not wasted all this time to discover a really great Fish & Chip shop.

This is definitely my favourite chip shop in Bristol, it's cheap as chips, quick service and delicious.

It does get very busy on Fri/Sat eve and it's... More

Despite only living a few miles from Farrows I've only heard about this place last few weeks. What a find, perfectly cooked fish and tons of delicious chips and nice curry sauce, will never eat from another chip shop. Friendly staff too. Highly recommended

First of all: this is a TAKE AWAY. We walked there for 30 min to find out that we could not sit there. The initial disappointment disappeared once we got our fish and chips. The portions were generous and the fish looked and tasted very fresh. The staff was very kind. I would strongly recommend it! PS: There is a... More
