Dropped in after being directed to it by locals. Chips taste home cooked, Cod in light batter was gorgeous and the mushy peas were quality. The above cost £9.50 with a can of pop & a cup of tea. Staff very friendly and helpful. Would I return? You bet.

I'm always a bit wary of an establishment that display an "award winning" banner to try drum up trade, but I can see why the chips served up might win awards. The service was good too, although the pies suffered the common problem of being rather soggy making one wonder if they were freshly baked.

This restaurant serves the nicest fish and chips in Lincolnshire. Try lightly battered cod, chips and mushy peas, they are delicious. The staff are efficient and very friendly.

Sam and his staff deliver quality fish and chips (other choices available) to eat in with waitress service, outside at tables and takeaway. Prices are average. I've never had a bad portion. Often go here as it's in town centre and smells so good it draws you in. Much better and filling and priced than the posh cafes or bakery... More

Ate in. Great value. Food arrived quickly and portions were very generous. Extremely nice waitresses. Loses a star for lukewarm tea, sticky condiments and taking the skin off the cod before frying! Locals queuing out of the door for takeaway.

Wonderfully old fashioned. Deliciously fresh. Friendly service. Their success means they are often very busy so choose your time wisely. Easily the best fish and chips in the region

It's a real treat to visit Tate's Fish Restaurant. On my last visit I had Skate, which was cooked to perfection, delicious and succulent, my husband had Plaice which he thoroughly enjoyed, both served with more than generous helpings of chips and peas, and served with a mug of great tea. The cod and chips is just as good, the... More
