Great fish and chips away from the city centre

Top quality value for money meals at the Kingfisher. We love our fish and chips and have found the Kingfisher to be the most consistent in West Yorkshire.

Best fish and chips in Wakefield, and kids eat free! Always fresh and the staff are really pleasant - wouldn't go anywhere else to eat fish and chips

There is an extensive menu including jumbo haddock and chips for £9, poached salmon fillet with chips and salad £9, all including tea or coffee... More

We've been here several times over the years and the quality and service never changes. Recommend both the takeaway and restaurant Not a big venue and car park so soon gets full but it only gets full because it's so popular

The Kingfisher is a good choice for your fish and chip dinner. I've only ever had a take out from here, I know they have a restaurant - I've never eaten in there but it looks ok. It's not the cheapest in the area but it is very good value for money so I would recommend buying from here.

We called at the takeaway this evening and ordered chips, they were so dry and hard they must have been hanging around for ages. I was expecting them to be nice here but I wish I had gone back inside the shop and asked for a refund, they were thrown away after trying to eat them and deciding we won't... More
