Best place for fish and chips in Cambridge

This is the best place to have fish and chips in Cambridge, it is also proabably the most expensive but if you want good fish and chips freshly cooked then this is the only place to go!

We have been customers since it opened, and it has been the best fish and chips you could want, but what has happened recently? The last two visits we were given tiny portions of cod, quite unlike the usual fare. The first time we thought it must be a blip, but then last Saturday the same happened, honestly it was... More

You do not expect high prices on Mill Road for average food they are not in the city centre. I was not impressed by the food and the table next to me even complained that their food was cold. I'm not sure if it was an off evening but I won't be returning.

I usually couldn't be bothered to write reviews but I feel obliged to after regularly visiting this place. The place may seem a bit cramped and basic but it certainly makes it up by serving the best seafood money can buy in Cambridge. Nothing more needed to be said here, just give the seafood risotto a try and you won't... More

I love fish but I'm not a fan of fish and chips... here I can love it and anyway there are many different options and it's also very cheap. Very tasty, you have to come and try!

They never give you enough chips anymore. Theres a salad and scallops dish - they used to give you about 10, now you get maybe 4 scallops. Theyve overcooked the fish twice for me recently. I would say try and eat in, they seem to try harder that way - and at least you can send it back if they... More

Ok it´s not fish like in Portugal but for the UK this is a very good fish restaurant. Great and tasty sea-food, fresh fish and overall very tasty dishes, I've tried the fish-stew and the fish and chips cod option and they were both tasty and very well served. Totally recommend this place, staff are very nice and welcoming, they... More

I refer to review of 26 May 2013, regarding gluten reaction after *carefully* ordering gluten-free. My wife, who is on a g-free diet, ordered calamari rings gluten free. As with the other review, soon after eating the meal, she started to experience allergic reactions. The restaurant itself is fine, the staff friendly and helpful, but after especially seeking out this... More

What a nice, clean we'll run chip shop and restaurant. We had the fish stew which was very good. However, the traditional fish and chips looks like it would take some beating. No reservations so you may have to wait, but it's well worth it.
