The board said the best fish and chips and we were not disappointed. The staff managed to find us a table even though we hadn't booked.

We'd heard such great reviews of this restaurant so added it to our 'to do' list during our visit to Lincoln. We booked in advance for a Tuesday lunchtime, but we needn't have as there were plenty of tables. The service from Holly was swift and very pleasant with all 4 of us opting for traditional fish and chips, deserts... More

We went to Lincoln castle today with six of our friends to see the Magna Carta, we were recommended a visit for lunch at this establishment. What a treat, without doubt the finest fish and chips I have ever eaten and we've eaten at what I though was the best ( The Magpie in Whitby ) the restaurant is fantastic,... More

What could be more familiar in British culture than a Fish and Chip restaurant? The challenge is that it would be all to easy to be left behind with that tired old approach and miss out on what was good. Well, The Burton Road Fish and Chip Restaurant have kept all the familiar essentials including serving the meal with tea... More

This chip shop is raved about. I've been a few times and each time I leaving wondering why. A regular fish is rather small for the cost and the chip portions appear to have gotten smaller on each visit. The food was very greasy and the curry that I ordered appeared very watered down. With such a good reputation I... More

Excellent fish & chips, perfectly cooked and not at all greasy, definitely award winning food! Nice selection of beers & drinks. Advisable to book the restaurant as normally busy, especially on the weekend.

Normally never disappointed and yet missed the mark on this occasion. Service always professional friendly and helpful. The fish was a bit on the small size even though it was a 'regular' and had a bit of an aftertaste.

Out for food this evening and came across this restaurant. Chose Sea Bass and Chips with peas. Bass cooked perfectly and the chips likewise. Very filling so we didn't choose one of the many deserts on offer, will have to call back again. Definitely worth a try.

Went today for the second time and cant say my opinion has improved in terms of the food...I appreciated they've won awards but I know at least two chip shops in Lincoln I would prefer before this one... perhaps just personal taste...but this has only been used for the 2nd time for convenience and doubt I'll go back. a very...
