Our meal was the lunch special of Cod &chips, mushy peas, tartare sauce,hot baguette with butter, sparkling water and coffee. This is amazing value at... More

The best fish and chips ever. You must visit or just get a take out and sit on the beach at Alum Chine. Crispy batter and the best chips. Efficient staff.

What a little find is this restaurant. Fresh flowers on the tables and in the toilets. Complimentery bottled water with the best fish, chips and mushy peas ever. Extra chips if wanted and all served by charming and heipful staff. It is very child friendly (we had three) and nothing is too much trouble for them. Prices are very reasonable... More

Do not be fooled by the outside, behind the fryers is a good sized sit-down chippy. And, on a Monday (I guess they change the oil in the fryers on a Sunday night) it's Gluten Free Heaven. Proper batter, proper chips, proper chippy. Result. Shame it's not Friday or Saturday or EVERYDAY. But good old fashioned fish and chips I... More

Have always thought the best Fish and Chips are from the North of England, therefore totally surprised by Chez Freds, very very good and good value. Very popular, get there early or you will be in a long queue.Plenty of sauces , drinks, friendly staff, good atmosphere.Not been in an evening but expect it will be even busier.
