Fantastic Place for the Fried Food Binge (and pizza)

This was a quick meal picked up by my family to satisfy the children's desire for pizza. Although they got the pizza, the Mrs. and I had to have the scampi and fish and chips. Let's just say that this place would be getting a trophy if I could hand such things out on my visits. The chips were... read more

So we ate somewhere else for lunch and it was okay. As I'm sitting in the car, parked outside of this place, waiting for my hubby to come back from the pharmacy with throat lozenges (darn Irish rain), I kept seeing tons of locals go in here. When he returned to the car, I told him we had eaten at... More

Stopped off in Bushmills for a family fish supper. We were not disappointed - freshly cooked to order, eaten by the River Bush watching the salmon jump. We all agreed that these were the best fish and chips we had ever eaten. We always return to the Hip Chip whenever we are visiting Bushmills.

large portions, you could probably feed three people on how much they serve you. Very Friendly and very helpful to travellers - although they were really busy - line-up out the door, they were happy to answer any questions we travellers had about their menu. The chips & fish were could to perfection. The serving is very generous so suggest... More

If you feel like fish and chips while staying in the Bushmills area then you can't go past the Hip chip. A lot of the locals seem to eat there which was a good sign....the queue was on the street.

Service was great, fish 'n chips really good. Right in the middle of town so very easy to access. Service was very quick even though place was extremely busy.

It is a proper traditional chippy that does fresh food and big portions. Clearly popular with locals as it was busy all the time and has long opening hours. Try it!
