Great chippy in Aviemore

Good little chippy tucked away on the high street with all meals priced with chips which helps. A bit small on the portions sizes but food tasted great.

We had not reserved a table anywhere and there was no room at any of the inns for supper. So we fell into Smiffy's by chance looking simply for some nourishment. The counter ladies made us feel welcome, very different from some of the fairly rude 'turn-aways' at other venues. There's a good range of Scottish chippy food - don't... More

Loved the fish and chips. My friend had the scampi and it was good. Order at the counter and then you pick up the order and get your own seat. Bathroom in the restaurant were clean. Walking distance from the train ride. Shopping area, walkers short bread outlet nearby.

Smithy's sell various tasty ice creams, milk shakes & hot drinks. Also, fish & chips & Scottish specials such as black pudding, white pudding & even a red pudding, a speciality in Eastern Scotland. Prices are reasonable. Eat in or take away. The premises are in the Main Street, more or less opposite the Tesco supermarket.

Visited Smiffys on 31st May in the late afternoon to have a break and a takeaway dinner while driving from Perth to Inverness. I've been a few times in the past, but not in years. It's the best fish & chip shop I've ordered from in a really long time! My mum had a King Rib supper, and I had... More
