Our Italian student wanted to experience this country's famous fish and chips! We took her to Browns in Christchurch and Dave didn't disappoint. It was a truly magnificent meal (with pea fritter and mushy peas). The queue outside for take away intrigued her and proved how popular it was. The waiter was attentive and we were even treated to a... More

I have enjoyed Fish & Chips the length of the UK. This place is one of the best. Dave "mine host" is priceless and the young waiter will learn a lot from watching how he operates. I opted for the Skate cooked in batter which was superb. This was followed by Daves "hot and cold" sweet which filled us up... More

It is not often that 'Fish and chips' and fine dining come together. Brown's is an exception to this with friendly service, clean tables, an extensive menu catering for most diets (especially gluten free) and most importantly food that is to die for. Special mention goes out to the desserts which are simply mind blowing! 10/10 For Brown's Fish &... More

I've been going to Brown's for a few years now after finding out they did wheat free. The food has always been excellent and well presented, and the staff are always friendly.

We have eaten at Brown's several times now and the quality of fish and chips has been simply outstanding. They cater for every need and have been 100% reliable in catering for my daughter with coeliac disease. We can highly recommend Browns for all ages, tastes and especially gluten free.

Had both takeaway and dine in options, the food is always fresh and flavoursome, served by staff keen to please. The lunch time special has battered hake, chips, mushy peas, bread & butter and cups of tea for £4.95 a head! My father being coeliac, has a treat with gluten free battered fish at this remarkable price. There are fish... More

Visited with the family a couple of weeks ago after a day out at Peppa Pig world. We all wanted fish and chips for dinner so after seeing the good reviews on here decided on Browns. We ate in the restaurant and were very impressed. The food was delicious and very good quality, we were made to feel very welcome... More

Always quality fish...large cod is a LARGE cod! Batter is light and tasty never greasy. They cater for gluten free (I have tried this and it's excellent) and will also breadcrumb or steam your fish on request at no extra charge. There can be a queue but everything is freshly cooked and the staff work hard to serve everyone as... More

Sometimes it is busy with a queue out of the door but never venture away as the quality at Brown's is something to behold. Probably the best fish & chips in England, always popular and yet providing the best value for money. Eat in or take away, you will not be disappointed !
