Tasty food, good service

We had Cod and chips take away for 3 people while on holiday, there was a wait but that's commom in most chip shops when they are busy, the staff were friendly and the price was good. The fish and chips were very tasty

We use this place often and fully recommend it. The young staff are excellent and the choices of batters great. They even supply glasses for your own drinks with no cover charge.

Brown's excels. Truly fantastic fish - including gluten free batter on request. Everything is always fresh, cooked just for you. Even approved of by my father-in-law who is an aficionado, and often difficult to please !

A Thursday night delight! Brown's is an excellent Fish Bar and restaurant. The food was superb, a real delight from the usual fish shop fair. Great selection and variation on cooking styles and batters, really recommend the 'panko crumb' which is light and tasty. Well balanced portions, lovely presentation, great friendly service and amazing value. If you like wine with... More

Every year I hold a barn dance for 180 people and Browns provide the fish and chips. Bearing in mind the size of the order and the fact they have to deliver them to the opposite side of Christchuch they are always hot and delicious. I wouldn't use anyone else!!

We have been using Brown's as our favourite fish & chip take away for years. However we noticed about 4 years ago that they had opened an 'eat in' place next door. We have been regularly since then. The menu choice and quality is excellent. Service is 'at home' and casual but a super friendly place to have fish and... More

Just visited with all the family and both the food and service were fantastic. Kiddies cleaned their plates of fish fingers and chips and the pan fried sea bass was superb, like you'd get in a posh restaurant but for less than £10! If you're in the area up recommend a visit, go early though as there's a queue before... More

Delicious food, excellent value for money. Will absolutely recommend. We live close and have visited several times, have so far tried ; chips, pea fritter, fish cake, burger and curry sauce. All very tasty! We can feed my husband and I and our toddler for about £7 and we all have very full tummies afterwards! I can see why this... More

Well cooked chips that are not saturated with fat like some establishments. Really recommend the king prawns in a light batter. And the children's cod goujons were rapidly eaten.you
