I live in Australia and when I come to the UK on holiday I just love to go there for the wonderful haddock and chips. The fish is of top quality and the batter very crispy and tasty. Would thoroughly recommend.

Food is terrible and way over priced! Batter is stodgy and snotty fryers clearly have no idea what their doing! Shut this place down.

Your review seems to be an attack on our business why on earth do you put shut this place down, I feel you have been put up-to putting a review on by a competitor or former employee. More

Just got back from meal at Murgatroyd's with hubby. Impressed by varied and extensive menu - different types of fish, seafood, chicken, burgers, veggie option, children's and seniors' menus. Alcoholic and soft drinks as well as usual tea and coffee (decaf available). We had seniors'. Plenty of choice for each of the three courses. I don't eat fried food (!)... More

Bad food! Staff tried to rush me out when I was waiting after my order! Personally i wouldn't go here ever again. Fish was greasy, overcooked and chips were dry. Don't understand all the hype from this place. The fountain over the road is a much better place to eat!

I find your review strange, why would any one want you out of our takeaway whilst waiting for food, please also note the Fountain over the road is now a part fish and chip come curry house. More

I had 30 minutes spare last week, as I was very hungry - I decided to treat myself to some fish and chips for the takeout section at Murgatroyds. Firstly I was shocked at how expensive a 'fish butty was'; £5.20, secondly I have to make it myself! Both the bread and fish were dry - not the quality I... More

Wife and I enjoyed excellent meal. Over-60 deal until 20:00 meant I got rather more for my money than my wife! Tap water tasted odd - wife's was OK, rather strangely.

Stopped by due to stopping in the Premier Inn opposite the night before our flight. The outside had a queue that was literally 30 people deep. The inside was packed out and bustling. To be fair the décor does need some modification but going by the average age of the clientele this would probably have been considered 'modern' to them.... More

The fish and chips are undoubtedly very good quality and freshly cooked. However when dining with a large group you are put in the rear conservatory which does not have much atmosphere. Senior menu quite good value but limited choice..puddings not very good. All in all probably better for couples/families. Does get busy at standard meal times so if there... More

Fish and chips is no longer a cheap meal, and Murgatroyd's is not the cheapest chippy in town, but you do get what you pay for. The battered haddock is among the best I have ever tasted. I have been visiting Billy Murg's for many years and the quality has always been consistently good. Whether eating in or getting take... More
