Best chippy in the Borders

A no frills chip shop with friendly service and fantastic food at a great price. I've been there over a dozen times and will definitely go back. Fantastic value.

Came upon this excellent Fish & Chip restaurant/takeaway last night and enjoyed the nicest fish and chips we have had for a long time.. The order was freshly prepared with large flaky fish covered in a light crispy batter that melted in the mouth complete with lovely chunky chips. Would highly recommend you try this place for yourself and will... More

The quality of the chips and food was excellent. Found the portion of chip sizes that come with suppers to be very small. Usually when ordering suppers you get a slight reduction in price than buying the two items seperate but not here. Served in paper bags as well which is rather odd and soggy if you're getting vinegar and/or... More

We've tried countless chip shops, from Orkney to Cornwall, in search of the perfect fish and chips. And in central Scotland in particular sub-standard chippies are strangely acceptable – perhaps because they are usually consumed after a few pints! But finally we have discovered an absolute gem of a place in Peebles that is well worth a long drive. Nothing... More

As title says. Beautifully cooked fish and chips. Thoroughly enjoyed my meal. Fish was very tasty and chips were golden brown and not overly greasy or flavoured by other cooked food. Will be having the same again.

I regularly travel 25 miles for a fish supper here, easily the best haddock and chips in the area. Food cooked fresh to order.

Fish is freshly cooked to order, batter was light and crispy. I had salad instead instead of chips and it was lovely and contained many different items. I'd suggest staff explain to customers that the fish is cooked to order and therefore there may be 10 minute wait.

Me and my partner sat in for an evening meal at Jim jacks. I ordered fishcake and chips and my partner ordered burger and chips. All the food was fresh and service was very good, only down side was the burger was a little dry but everything else spot on. Great prices too.
