Passed this earlier in the day and decided to head there for 'chippie' tea. We both opted fo ar fish tea. Fish, chips, mushy peas, tea & buttererd bread. I would suggest if you're not too hungry opt for smaller one.. .I only manage the fish (which was huge!) and a few chips. Great value for money, came to less... More

We were in the area and decided to try this on the back of these good reviews.Not one of the three of us enjoyed our meal and to be frank are amazed at the good reviews.Do not put tartare sauce on your fish as it was the worst I have ever tasted.

Hubby and I recently moved to Peebles and visited here recently for takeaway due to work ongoing in our house. Don't usually eat fish & chips very often but glad we came here! The fish was melt in the mouth, delicious! Chips are real potato and cooked to perfection. Everything is freshly cooked so you have to wait a couple... More

Recommended by a friend so we stopped in tonight. Nothing pre-cooked on the fryer at the counter so it seems it's cooked to order. The food was very good and service polite. It's one of those places that it's good to know so you can get a good meal in an unfamiliar town.

Delicious white pudding supper. Really tasty chips perfectly cooked! But... A really small, busy, cramped seating area where if your table isn't bumped into by the waitress your chair will be bumped into by other guests as tables are crammed in so close to each other. Waitress got drinks order wrong, but quickly corrected. Good value, but would probably take... More

2nd visit; this time we had a sit down. Restaurant is a small and popular basic UK cafe tucked on the side of the chippy. Clean. Waitress service. Fish is freshly cooked. Fillet was thick and boneless. Batter was just right. Quality. Real chips (no reconstituted pre cooked potato rubbish here). Bread and butter available if you feel like making... More

As a resident of Peebles for the last fifteen years I’ve been a fan of this fish and chips establishment since I first arrived. It was initially called Big Ebb’s, but became Jim and Jacks for the last several years. I feared that it wouldn’t be as good as the original “chippy” but have been pleasantly surprised. The decor has... More
