Gluten free fish and chips at last!

This place is a hidden gem! On my first visit the owner really took the time to explain his commitment to offering a good gluten free menu for people following that diet. He really has gone the extra mile and I was very impressed to see that gluten free curry sauce was also available! Thank you... read more

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

It's hard to find good chip shops in town but take a little drive to totterdown and you'll find the real McCoy of chip shops. The best, full stop

This place seems too popular for its own good. Arriving around 7.30pm on a Saturday there was a queue out of the door, which moved very slowly indeed as there were only two staff on duty and the counter area is very cramped. Meals seemed to be made to order, which was fine, but with one person in the queue... More

So lately I've been spending my weekends in Totterdown but live in another bit of the city. I thought I'd suss out some local takeaways & found this place. The reviews are justified! Lovely clean place, efficient friendly service & reasonably priced. We had a medium haddock each & shared a large chips (probably could've shared a medium portion of... More

My partner is a coeliac and has for years been unable to enjoy the delights of chips and other fried foods. Imagine her joy and delight when we discovered Farrows brilliant fish and chips. Also a vegetarian she has less selection than most but was able to go home with 3 gluten free items which gave her a delightful meal.... More

I have been here multiple times and every time the food has been excellent. Great chips, excellent fish and tasty pies. Always friendly service. Lastly it's great value. Makes my list of top five fish and chip shops I've ever been to

Always worth the visit. Great generous portions of well fried chips, tasty fish and bean fritter. I'd actually forgotten how generous the chip portions are. Maybe a medium next time!

Stopped by this busy f&c shop after seeing reviews and heard it was good! Had a large haddock, chips and mushy peas. Cooked to perfection! The Shop is really clean, bright and welcoming. Do give this place you will be suitably impressed!

Fish chips and curry sauce to die for. Always go out of my way to drive here when hungry (great portion size) in and around Bristol. Compliments to the Chief Fryer!!!
