Really excellent food

We were in a hurry for some lunch and found this little fish and chip shop. The staff was extremely friendly and the product was excellent. The only minor nit is it did seem to take a bit longer to prepare than I thought it should.

On a cold and wet evening after a 400+ mile drive I was very much looking for something good. Frontage looked welcoming and tidy so gave it a go. Greeted with a friendly welcome, prompt service and a lovely large plate of fish n chips. Piping hot and delicious. Definitely recommend a visit

Could not fault this place for its cleanliness, variety and friendliness. Chowder to start is fab, seafood platter an experience, and its bring your own booze. Best chippy for miles...

Although it looks like a fish and chip shop from the front, this restaurant serves excellent food with friendly service. We enjoyed a lovely seafood meal of restaurant quality. However, look out for the slippery floor on wet days.

The fish and chip shop situated on George Street, Oban is well worth a visit when in Oban. The fish is always fresh and portions plentiful. The staff are friendly and very informative. Rick Stein visited the shop and recommended it as one of the best in Britain.

Took my colleague here who was up working with me for a couple of days as he loves his fish. Fast service and the fish was BRILLIANT one of the best I have had. Batter was perfect and not dripping with oil. Very Good.

Being a first time visit to this friendly port city, asking about for Fish & Chips was intended to land me a prize catch. After tallying the results of my own straw poll, Oban Bay F&C was the number one choice. After just a few minutes standing in the take away line, I paid and made my way to a... More

I visited Norries today after a recommendation from the bus driver of the tour I was on. I don't usually trust these types of recommendations as I feel the driver recommends them as they get a "kick-back". However, that was not the case today. It was a genuine recommendation and it was spot on. It was hands down the best... More

Came here with a group of seven with kids for dinner. Food was decent and servers were friendly. They offer sit-in and take away and include burgers and pizza along with the usual chip shop fare. Not a bad little place and there is a parking lot in the block behind (follow the signs).

Couldn't sit in, as had dog with me. Got fish and chips to take out. Looked like plenty of seats inside, and seats outside too. Great views of the bay if you were sitting in. Got mine and sat on the bench across the road and watched the ships while I ate. Cost was £6, average price I guess. Loads... More
