Best Fish & Chips in SE England!

We once went to Herne for Fish & chips - and we were so disappointed. We could have stayed home in Wincheap, Canterbury and had the best fish & chips in SE England - at the Deep Blue. Freshly fried fish every time, and the chips are *not* fried in disgusting palm oil - portions are big! and... read more

A wonderful fish & chip place in Canterbury that myself and friends from Hong Kong visited yesterday. The service was fantastic with the two gentleman being extremely kind and fun with us all. Plus the cod was brilliantly served along with some great chips to add. An all time favourite of mine and if you visit Canterbury, this should be... More

The fish and chips are always freshly cooked. When we eat in the restaurant area my husband likes the fact he can have his fish grilled. Staff always polite and the service is good.

Visited here on a Thursday evening in February. So the restaurant was fairly quiet. The staff were very friendly and service was quick. The portions were very generous and the price very fair. But the food was a little bland. I had to add quite a lot of salt and pepper to my dish to make it more interesting. Overall... More

This place is great, it's been around for years. The fish and chips fast fresh and much nicer than the one in town opposite Waterstones. Staff are generally friendly and price can be quite dear, however, you are paying for a City price. The portion is great. Recommend this place to anyone.

Amazing sized portions (glad I didn't pick the large fish and chips - the medium was more than I could manage!). Great friendly service and very good value.

I visit here weekly for takeaways, and dine in every few weeks with my close family to celebrate occasions. Living in Canterbury all our lives, but having traveled frequently internationally over the years, this is one of the very few places we visit repeatedly when we decide to dine out. The prices are pretty standard, but there's a good number... More

On a school trip to England in May, I booked lunch at the restaurant for 55 teenagers and their teachers and was very happy for that: we got served really fast, the food was just perfect and the service very friendly and helpful. A great place that I highly recommand.
