Takeaway fish and chips are fresh, plenty full and yummy!! Even better if you stay in the restaurant. Service is fast, efficient and friendly. Kids eat free (fish and chips) when an adult is eating and the portion sizes are adequate for even the older child. Definitely recommend a visit.

16 of us were accommodated on a busy Sunday tea time. I recommend the large haddock! The fish and chips were hot and crispy batter along with succulent fish made a very tasty special Birthday meal. The service was polite and prompt. We all thoroughly enjoyed it.

Stopped off for fish and chips here and had a nice enough meal although the bread came without butter and by the time a waitress had come to the table so we could ask for butter we had already eaten our fish and chips. Still only a minor point. There were the usual sauces on the table in sachets and... More

We're lucky to have so many good fish & chip restaurants in Wakefield. We visit the Kingfisher every couple of months and it's always great value for money, the staff are lovely and the food is always good. I would give 5 stars if that also offered a Hollands pie as well as Pukka Pies.

We passed the Kingfisher when out shopping and decided we would call for tea on our way back. I am so glad we did. It was early on a Friday so we were lucky to get a seat, even at this time (before teatime) it was busy. The tables were a little close together but we grabbed a table for... More

Called in here on friday night at 9pm after working from 6.30am. Drove home 5 miles and had to microwave as they were already too cold to eat. Fish was a bit better but the chips were still poor and didn't taste great. Probably best to avoid late on or stop opening late to supply poor quality. I know they... More
