I went here with my mum, nan and little brother and the service you get is exceptional. Even though they are a little fish bar they serve with a smile and make everyone feel welcome, you instantly feel like you know them because they engage in general chit chat with you.

We were making our way through Canterbury and decided to stop and try their fish and chips. We had to say that we tried it at least once during our visit to England. The portion of fish was generous and it was very tasty though I do agree it was a bit on the greasy side... But that is to... More

Ate here enticed by smell on way to eat elsewhere. Wish we hadn't. Food very greasy, chips seemed a bit undercooked, and I felt quite unwell afterwards. Still feeling a bit sick the next day.

A fantastic fish and chips on a Friday night after a walk through the Canterbury centre. Food was phenomenal, staff were extremely kind and friendly, and they epitomised great customer service. This was the best meal I've had, it was that good and words could describe how good it was. And, to top it all off, I saw an Arsenal... More

The staff were very friendly and made us feel really welcome. We sat at a little table to eat our food and unlike and other fish and chip shop I've ever been in, the staff came over... More

We popped in here whilst ambling around Canterbury and looking for somewhere warm. The staff were all friendly and chatty, the food was good and arrived very quickly. I can recommend the scampi and the mushrooms. We even had a nice cup of tea!
