Was up in Ayr for the day and had chips and sausages from here, they were up there with some of the nicest chippy meals I have ever had. The sausages were proper beef meat, not your average crappy catering sausage. The chips were nice and fluffy and dry, not slimy and greasy. The portions are very generous and there... More

In Ayr for a night and thought we would try the chippy seeing it so busy. The girl serving seemed to be very annoyed that we had bothered her evening by daring to order food, and heaven forbid, a can of diet coke. We took the food away to eat in a local park and it was awful! I barely... More

I've been visiting the Wellington Fish Restaurant for years and every visit, without fail, the food is top quality. It is always fresh, delicious and the portions are always enormous. The service is also excellent. I would highly recommend the Wellington Fish Restaurant, and defy anybody to find a better place for Fish and Chips!

The girls who serve the tables are super friendly, helpful and efficient. The food is brilliant value for money, and made to order. I use this restaurant a lot in a work capacity, but also in a personal capacity. I enjoy going with friends as the atmosphere is so relaxed.

We visited Ayr and had a fantastic haddock, chips, bread and butter and tea. The service was excellent . The food was piping hot and tasty. It was good to be back in Scotland for quality fish.

My wife lived in Ayr many years ago and was looking forward to a fish 'supper' from Wellington. We ordered our fish and chips, which were well wrapped, and carried them about 300yds back to our guest house. On unwrapping the food, we were totally devastated to find that the fish was cold! On reflection, we should have gone back,... More

Having made many visits to this establishment on a bus trip from the city over the last number of years, my friend and I have enjoyed the super suppers in this traditional fish and chip shop. Excellent staff and have never been let down. Well worth a visit and superbly located directly across from the bus station.

Wonderful fish and chip shop. The special fish is delicious and great chips too, not the usual greasy ones you usually get at chippies. Had take-away and ate down by the sea. Excellent. Definitely recommend if you are at Ayr. Excellent service too.

We were going out to a late meal so we just wanted something light so we ordered a small plate of chips each. When it came, it was massive. The chips were well cooked and we scoffed them.
