If you want the best fish and chips go here! If the queue is out the door get in it, they have a great system and you will soon be seated. Don't have the large portions they are big!! Fizz & chips on offer bit expensive, but worth getting the partner to drive. If anything this place has got better... More

I walked from bournemouth with our two boys and it was well worth the effort. Really nice fresh cod with good batter not too thick and heavy with plentiful chips. A nice surprise is they offered the children a little activity pack with crayons and little drawing book which kept them busy until the food arrived. They also gave a... More

Always a queue for take away food . The quality is good but not as good as rated. Many people come from far and wide but I don't see the attraction to be honest..

The food was fantastic, with the lightest batter I've ever tried. Prices are great value and service was brilliant. A winner. Be prepared to queue out the door as it's so popular.

Sadly, the food is sloppy, badly cooked and not always fresh - once I came here and the meat in the curry smelled really bad - like it was past the sell by date. I couldn't eat it. Another time I ordered takeaway and they forgot to put everything I ordered in the bag. They also turned me away for... More

I love discovering nice tasty food and this place was an amazing discovery. The chips are delicious and if you eat in and want more you can have more free. The mushy peas which I think are home made where delicious and the home made curry sauce was also delicious. The mayonnaise I was given was also quality mayonnaise and... More

We frequently visit Chez Fred as the quality & taste of their food clearly outdoes all other fish & chip shops in our area. The establishment is very popular, therefore can get particularly busy at peak times, but the standard of food never slips. I would highly recommend a visit!

My English family swears that Chez Fred is the best fish and chips shop them have in Bournemouth/Poole area. So naturally we had to do take away at least once during our trip. Chez is a very popular local place, we waited 40 minutes for our take away order, it was worth it though. We waited outside on the sidewalk.... More

Did this as a take away - good fish and chips that stayed hot and succulent, with batter still crisp after a 10 minute journey. Good choice of fish and of note was a sign telling you the type of potatoe being cooked that day and its origin. And good chips they were. Be aware that there is limited parking... More
