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

Have now used the restaurant twice whilst on business as a quick tea. Fish and chips were fine, second time had decent mushy peas too. However it is a bit disappointing that they're served on a cardboard plate. Restaurant are is decent and clean. Staff have been friendly and food served quite quickly. Of a reasonable standard but nothing special.

I have been going to Smiffy's for over 30 years. It has had its ups and downs but right now it seems to be on an up. On balance I think it is a little expensive

We were very hungry and looking forward to a simple fish supper but unfortunately we were disappointed. First of all the portions are very small for a chippy so if you're really hungry you will not be satisfied. You get one small piece of fish and a tiny portion of chips. The chips were greasy and soggy. The fish did... More
