Not only is the food excellent but service is given with a smile and, if you're lucky, you might even get a magic trick or two :) The menu is impressively varied - they put real effort into making sure they cater to everyone, despite being a fish 'n' chip place at the core. Pretty cool to be able to... More

Very good takeaway fish n’ chips or sit down in the small café and have a small fish n chips, mushy peas, bread and pot of tea for £5.25! They also have a sandwich bar next door.

By far our favourite chippy in the area: delicious and freshly-cooked fish & chips, served with smiles, even on busy Friday nights. Well-priced too. We probably buy from here 20+ times a year, which speaks for itself. Hint: ask for the free slices of lemon!

Brown's fish and chips is wonderful! As a coeliac it's really hard to find places where I can eat without worrying that gluten will find its' way into my meal; I feel a hundred percent confident every time I eat here knowing my food is prepared and cooked separately. Everything is delicious and presented beautifully, there are a variety of... More

I used this place when bunking off school dinners in the 1970s. Different owners, different style, better food now, customer service good and very nice atmosphere. Haddock excellent, chips great, portions huge. Menu huge, but as the title says dreadful mushy peas, more like runny processed peas.

This is quite simply the best fish and chips. I usually have a home made fish cake which trumps all other fish cakes! There is a wide range of food to order, it is very efficiently run and employs excellent staff! Add to this that they do delicious mushy peas and regularly stock Dandelion and burdock cans makes this a... More

We had visited Browns once previously as it was recommended to is by a friend who lives locally and is a regular. We went back for a second time and the food was just as good. Really nice chips, perfectly cooked fish which was in a nice light batter, and we tried something We had never seen before, the pea... More
