My favourite chippy

Food cooked fresh in beef dripping, Whitebait is awesome, spam fritters are an experience (depends on if you like spam! Which I do!) cod bites are sublime, home made cod cake is also great. Great staff, great prices, great food. I rarely go anywhere else!!!!

Good selection of fish, chicken, pies and sausages. Generous portions and a good price. Always cooked freshly to order. Staff are lovely. Have been getting fish and chips from here for over 40 years.

I'll I was recommended to Pieseas by Mann Lines after collecting an incoming shipment. The welcome was warm with my cod and chips cooked to order (and perfection !) for a very reasonable £5.50. The establishment is now run by relatives of the previous proprietor Kieron Mealing (aka Spam) who provide an unrivalled choice of fish, including Rock (Dogfish) and... More

Needed something quick before catching the ferry and spotted this fish and chip shop. Not quite what we had planned but had run out of time for sit down meal and it would be too late to eat on the ferry so it fitted the bill. Everything is cooked fresh to order and there was a great variety of fish... More

Upon arrival to Harwich for a Baltic Sea cruise, I asked the proprietor of the B&B that we are staying in where to get good fish and chips. Pieseas is what was recommended, and it definitely was well worth the walk! The cod tasted very fresh, and the fish and chips were hot and very good. This was my daughter's... More

Dropped in here by chance. A very good example of what a fish & chips shop should be. Lovely wait staff, good prices, excellent food. What more could you want?

Visited Pieseas (locally aka Spam's, after the fondly remembered ex-proprietor) to pick up a classic chippy tea for my mum's birthday. I always feel you can judge such an establishment on arrival, by the presence of Rock (or Nuss, or Huss, actually dogfish) on the menu, and it's always my choice. Generous pieces of fish all round and heaps of... More
