Best fish and chips ever!

Quinlans was packed when we arrived, but the service is brisk and efficient and we didn't have to wait long for a table. The seafood is outstanding - perfectly cooked fish and chips and more besides - fish cakes, squid. No alcohol served, but remember this is an up market fish and chippie and... read more

I pulled my original review as the owner cited an inaccuracy in my description of my dish. Rather than edit, I chose to do a rewrite. I never once questioned the freshness of the fish here . I have no reason to believe that is not true. I just do not understand how lines supposedly form to dine here. (... More

The best Fish & Chips ever. Be prepared to wait for a table but the wait is well worth it. Large piece of fish. Both the Haddock and Cod were exceptional. Large serving of chips which were very tasty and the onion rings were outstanding. Recommended Quinlans to several others and they loved it as well.

Maybe we are spoilt, but after reading the reviews on TA, we were expecting something special. Coming from Yorkshire, we have some excellent fish and chip restaurants, and Quinlans, did not match them. There is nothing wrong with the fish and chips, but nothing amazing either. My wife had fish cakes, which appeared to contain a small amount of fish,... More
