The BEST just got BETTER

We tried to visit Chez Fred in November and were horrified to find they were closed for MAJOR refitting. The new layout is just amazing, much bigger (as they have expanded) with beautiful decorations and fittings throughout. Plus the best fish and chips we have ever had! The service is as ever... read more

My friend recommended this place and I wasn't disappointed. Excellent service, perfectly cooked fish and unlimited chunky golden chips. And the kids menu is even better value for money. Kids eat for under a fiver. This includes main meal quality ice cream and a drink. I came away feeling content and not ripped off. This really is a great place... More

Just had a great fish and chips dinner at chez Fred, for the first time, even though friends had told me how great it was. Brilliant fresh fried fish, no greasy oil on the plate and chunky chips, plus real mushy peas! Great service and atmosphere.

Where to start? Absolutely fantastic from start to finish. Fish and chips to die for - just the right portions. Staff friendly and welcoming nothing was to much trouble. Will not be going anywhere else in the future. Thank you all at Chez Fred and see you soon.

Very pleasantly surprised by this venue, which was spotlessly clean and very nicely decorated with a new twist on a 'traditional theme' The food was excellent - and very good value The staff were brilliant - very helpful I would definitely use this again when I am back in Bournemouth

Having recently moved to the area, a number of people recommended this takeaway. It must be said that the staff were very friendly, and the food tasted great, but I have 2 criticisms. Firstly, the portion size was very poor, especially considering the price. On a £1.80 portion of chips, you shouldnt be able to count them! Secondly, the takeaway... More

We have been coming here for some time and these are the best fish and chips I have ever tasted. We live in London and often have cause to come down to Poole. There is no question where the first place to visit, will always be. After tasting the food at Chez Fred, fish and chips anywhere else is just... More

Thankfully, this is our local chippy & we don't have to travel miles to get our fix (one guy does a 40 mile round trip!)/ Cod & Chips are heavenly & fantastic portion size - a large portion is ample for 2 people. Love the fact that they also do a 'Gluten Free Monday', whereby the batter is made especially... More
