Haddock and chips were a disgrace never seem so much grease on a plate! Batter soggy, chips reheated! Kids meals were either deep fried pizza or when we ordered 1 measly sausage in a sea of chips!! Avoid at all costs over priced a poor quality!

Tolerable service but poor, bad tasting and overpriced food. Avoid if in the area. Takes greasy chipshop to a new level.

Uncooked, tasteless wet batter. Ordered a fish supper what I got was 5 chips and some soggy wet stuff all over some of what I hope was actual fish. Brutal.

Good little fish and chippy in town centre....warm, welcoming, and the Fish and Chips are very reasonably priced, but more than that, excellent taste! Was a bit dubious, having read some other tripadvisor comments, but we couldn't have been more pleased. Great place!

At last a place in Aviemore that delivers what it promises. This is a great chipper - great grub, friendly people, unpretentious decor. Spot on.

After a journey from SE England nothing quite says I'm back in Scotland quite like a Haggis Supper, and this is one of the best.
