Drove to arrowtown especially to get takeaway fish and chips.This chippy has closed down some time ago but direction signs to it still up! Its website has not been taken down either. Such shame as no alternative.

Fish and chips at premium prices. We dropped in on our way through to the West Coast wanting a quick meal and ended up waiting about 20-30 minutes for our food to arrive. Not ideal for fast food.

Lovely fish and chips served with lemon slices (nice touch). Liked there was a selection of fish to choose from. Not too salty another plus. Yes would drive from Frankton again for takeaways.

Being an Arrowtown local I've only expected to be greeted with the freshest fish and crispest chips as always. Instead, it's door has been closed so many times, and when lucky strikes, there is no fresh fish to honor its name. The place should get a grip and decide if it wants to keep the business or close for good.

This was my favourite takeaway, once a week treat. Unfortunately the lady there has a terrible attitude and is consistently horrible to all customers. Tonight I picked up my order before they closed, got home and found my 2 fish that I paid for was 1 small fish cut in two, the crumbed mussels were cooked so much they had... More

Two couples each split an order of fish and chips. Perfect fries, quality tomato sauce, and not-too-thick/not-too-greasy batter. A nice lunch to eat outdoors after a walk along the river path.

Always fresh & tasty, the fish is battered on site not the nasty Pre battered stuff you can get. Can't really beat it for a good quick takeaway option

Love the fish and chops here, what a great way to finish the week and not have to cook myself. Truly great fish and chips, and a real experience in lovely Arrowtown!

Everytime I go t the South Island I always make a point of eating Blue Cod, my favourite fish. We purchased takeaway blue cod and chips and they were delicious. Would definately go back and recommend to anyone.

Beautiful fish and chips. Blue cod is a real treat and a great local specialty that I enjoy when I'm down south. It was cooked wonderfully and was obviously as fresh as any of the finest fish I have eaten. Well done
