We got take out thus didn't realise our order was short a portion of chips until we got home. The portions themselves are fairly small compaired to your average chip shop, made even smaller by the fact we were missing some of the order. The chips themselves were hard and overcooked, maybe it was a good job we didn't get... More

Absolutely excellent csh and chips and friendly efficient service. They can handle large crowds in the seating area which is pretty genteel for a chip pie (it's licensed) but personally I find it a bit noisy and prefer to take out bless I'm with a big crowd.

Found this No 1 Burton Road Chippy by accident and so glad we did. So nice to sit in lovely surroundings eating superb fish and chips. Can see why it has gained it's enviable status. We need more of these establishments in our towns, to show the well known fast food outlets how it's really done! Definitely recommend!

Having read the reviews and awards won here decided to give it a try on a busy Saturday lunch. We decided to eat in the restaurant and although busy got a table straight away. It is nicely decorated for a chip shop and the waitress was quick to serve us and tell us about the menu. The fish was cooked... More

We only got a take away this time but it was some of the best fish and chips we have ever had. It was a long wait (it was Friday evening!) but you had to shout what fish you wanted as you got in the door so that it was freshly cooked by the time you came to pay. They... More

I regularly used to visit this chip shop as without a doubt it was the best in lincoln . It's always had its faults like the fact that you wait on average 20 minutes for your food, but that's ok a busy chippy means a good one. The fact that your nearly tripping over a big sign that says "... More
