Incredible fish, rubbish chips & toothless crone

The cod was marvellous but the chips were not very nice. They were edible but very soggy and school-canteeny. Plus there was a wretched toothless woman in the queue who accused me of pushing in (though I don't hold them responsible for that). Solutions for improvement: (a) google how to... read more

As a veteran student of aber i used to visit the express just after it opened, always being one of the busiest chippies in town, now it seems to have gone a little quiet, but the food was good. My wife had the fish and chips, fish was cooked fresh, the batter was light and crispy, one of the first... More

I used to go to the Dolphin as a student. And as the weather was not favourable for outside fish and chips, I took my family here. Regrettable. Not the greatest fish and chips. Lacklustre service. Filthy ceiling fans. And no toilets in the building for the public. At least it was fairly cheap....

The fish and chips I had from here (take-away) were the best I have tasted for years. The fish, cod, was huge. Excellent value for money.
