Great fish and chips, and friendly staff! Good extras too like, pickled onions, mushy peas , hot curry sauce ,super cold drinks etc great British Standard oh!, and freshly cooked. The original owner 'Spam', is happy knowing that his legacy, handed to his Family is being kept up 100% I'm sure.

We were staying just over the road from Pieseas so had seen the almost permanent queue down the street for several days and thought we must be missing out! It was worth the wait, the cod and chips were delicious with very light crispy batter and reasonably priced. Some of the best we've had!

Following the positive reviews I decided to try this establishment After being put off fish and chips for many years because of the lacklustre chippies near my own locale and the tasteless greasy fish which I had suffered every time I decided to 'try' fish and chips one more time this was not an easy ting to do.

Top chippy! Stopping in Harwich over night, been looking forward to fish & chips by the seaside all week. And it was well worth the wait. I asked the receptionist of our hotel where the best chippy was and without hesitation he gave me directions to this place. Fresh "rock eel" (AKA dogfish) cooked to order. Batter was crisp and...

The service is top notch, the food is of very high quality, and the place is very clean and presentable. I've lived in 3 seaside towns in my life and Pieseas is by far the best fish & chip shop I've ever been to! First of all, the prices are great but this doesn't mean that the food quality suffers...

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.
