Considering the excellent reviews on here I expected much better for a takeaway than an extremely greasy bit of fish. The batter was crispy, yet soggy with grease, no easy task! Chips were a measly portion and weren't up to much either. Overall I was thoroughly disappointed, although in their defense, everyone I've spoken to says it's a great place,... More

Very friendly helpful staff. My husband opted for fish (battered) and chips with bread and butter and tea. I had fish (breaded) and chips with a coffee. Excellent food, large portions, spotless environment. The lady even got a more comfortable chair for my husband. We travelled from Edinburgh and it was well worth the trip. Good menu with reasonable prices.... More

Only a take away this time but excellent scampi and chips, perfectly cooked. Why don't we have such a good chippie in our town?

We chose Jim Jacks on the basis of the excellent TripAdvisor reviews and were delighted that our experience accorded well with the experience of others. The meal was excellent. We all ordered haddock and chips and this was served within 20 minutes at our table. The food was fresh and tasteful and it was clear that the meal was cooked... More

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
