Firstly big companies could learn a bit about customer service from Donna. She seems to know the name of every customer, what they like and waves a friendly goodbye to everybody on the way out. Well done Donna. The food doesn't quite match the service but its still pretty good and any chip shop which adds crispy bits is a... More

I grew up in Falkirk and if you did to you'll know 'Balfour'! You'll not get a better chippy anywhere! It's so good... best chips! Best black pudding, Best king rib, Best brown sauce... The list goes on and on. I definitely recommend this place to everyone. The staff are brilliant and friendly and they never forget a face!

The chips were beautiful, the black pudding supper was fantastic and the sausage was amazing. I think it is the best chippy in town! They make everything fresh. The curry sauce is really good. The mushroom pizza is the best thing in there. So everyone should go and try it because it is amazing! I will go back there again... More

As a family we have tried most of the menu in Balfour's and everything is great! The staff are friendly and great with children. Portions are generous and it is value for money.

Clearly very popular with local judging by queue, however seemed unprepared for a tea time rush, fish was good but chips were very ordinary even though obviously cut on premises, portions good, server was coughing and spluttering, handy off the motorway, easy to find opposite football ground but there other options here.
