We use Oliver's weekly for our fish and chip fix, and have done for many years. We always just went for the good food and service but the atmosphere, whilst pleasant, was a secondary consideration. Now however their refurbishment is complete and it has improved the ambience and atmosphere no end. Food remains as good as ever, with a few... More

We first thought that we would treats ourselves to a couple of portions off chips after a long hard week, and based on the last time we went to Olivers they were to die for. After staying in a queue for about 5 to 10 minutes (what's new there), when I got home to dig into the food I was... More

Worst chips I have ever had. Better off traveling into town as the quality is far better. The chips were old and like finger nails, the fish was broken and soggy. Will never use it again.

Oliver's is by far the best Fish & Chip shop this side of the Sea! I highly recommend their Chicken Nuggets, a good helping of their yummy chips and a dash of vinegar! perfecto!

Since my last review of Oliver's last year I have noticed a lot of negative reviews appearing on Trip Advisor, so I thought I should re-iterate my view that it is still the best fish & chip restaurant for miles around (especially now that Mariner's in Hartley Wintney has closed). We have visited Oliver's numerous times in the last few... More

Olivers regularly wins best fish & chip shop in Basingstoke, but that understates how good it is. A full range of fish, including huss, usually an interesting special which you can have grilled as well as deep fried, fair sized portions and always tastes fresh. The restaurant is straightforward and unstuffy. Good value, great taste.

I have used this place many times in the past, both the restaurant and the take away - but not again. Had cod and chips take away tonight and I think I have bigger goldfish in my pond than the piece of cod we received! I would far rather pay a little more and have a slightly bigger piece of... More

Have been a few times to the restaurant and a few times having a takeaway from there... And each time it has got slightly worse since our original review. However I can say today was probably the last time I will be going. Their fish is the only thing that is quite decent there, their chips are and were very... More

Ate there on Sunday at noon, initially it was very quiet and we got served even quicker than normal! I had whitebait and jumbo haddock & chips; my partner had the grilled swordfish and to top it off I had the pineapple fritters. What can I say? The service is excellent and the food top rate. Rarely have we had... More
