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

I have been coming here for many years and the staff are friendly. The food is excellent - I advise going when you are very hungry as the portions are large.

We entered this fish and chip shop and placed our order. Being told that it would take a few minutes, we sat on the bench and waited.. After 10 minutes several people had been served - some who came in before us, some after us. My medium cod had been served a few times. After 20 minutes, still no sign... More

We grabbed some fish and chips from hear to eat in our hotel garden. The chips were lovely, no used oil taste and really hot. I had cod and my husband had the roe he loved his. The batter on my cod was lovely but the cod was really dry at the ends. The staff were lovely though. It's a... More

This place was recommended to us by a local when we were looking for fish and chips. The fish and chips were excellent! Freshly cooked and not greasy! There is a choice of take out or eat in. We chose to eat in and were well rewarded! The staff are so friendly and even stopped to chat when there was... 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
