Bang on!

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.

Got a fish supper from here, one small piece of fish and a few handfulls of chips for £7! Total rip off! Fish was very nice to fair, but you get twice as much for less money in Glasgow! Maybe I'm just spoilt!

Have been going to Smiffy's on our annual holiday for many years now. Back again this year and the usual Special Fish supper we always have was very nicely cooked as usual. The rolls and butter weren't up to much though - they have changed from the usual nice bread to basic hamburger baps! However the fish and chips were... More
