Great Chippy

Consistently good food and fair portions for the price. There is a reason they have won so many awards! The dining area is very small, so takeout is a better option. There are often queues, but they move quickly enough.

This is a very ordinary looking fish & chip café in a busy area with just a few tables - but the fish & chips were excellent. One of us had cod, the other haddock and both were first class - cooked to perfection and the service was friendly. The place has recently won an award for healthy eating (not... More

My wife & I decided to have Cod & chips for lunch today & thought we would try Harbourside because we had seen the award signs outside. What a mistake this was. My wife's fish was small & just about edible, mine was inedible! I did try & eat it but after trying different parts of the portion, about a... More

I decided to try the large Haddock and chips which was nice but certainly not worthy of the hype that is displayed on the shop front window. The fish was fairly small and not large as expected and only came with a few chips and I had to pay for the peas separately, and sauce if I wanted it.... The... More

Food is always delicious. Something special about fish & chips by the sea. Definitely eat here if you are down around the Barbican.

As the title says. Excellent chips. Actually, better than excellent, superb chips made from proper quality Maris Pipers. I actually had the char grilled haddock as battered fish is not a favourite of mine. It was really really good. So if you fancy fish n chips but worried about your heart or the calories then try the char grilled haddock.... More
