Very friendly staff and fast service. Delicious food, very pleasant surroundings. No horrid smells of fat, just a lovely clean fish and chip smell - delicious. We were a mixed age group, age 40-80 and we all enjoyed our meals including haddock, cod, scampi, sausages and, of course, chips. Only a little more expensive than takeaway but no washing up...

This is fish and chips as good as it gets. Beautiful large cod, freshly fried in light batter. Really nice chips, not greasy, not too small, not too big, (not from a packet!) Mushy peas, coleslaw, curry sauce all available. Fried banana or fried apple for desert with ice cream and syrup. OMG this takes it to a whole new... More

You know what it is like when your stomach clock goes out of sync,and then you think well I cannot wait for the journey home which is about 90 minutes. So still armed with the... More

Had to queue but was worth waiting for. All freshly cooked to order. The queue never seemed to get shorter people joining all the time.

Quite simply the best fish and chips ever. Huge pieces of cod, lovely chips. Ask for scraps and you get a bagful. Huge value for money. Eat in or take away you won't find bigger or better in the Fens

Title says it all. Quality food, excellent customer service. Only one problem....you might have a long wait as the que is regularly out the front door! (Is that a problem? Sign of a good chippie!)

We have eaten in the restaurant a couple of times but mainly by fish and chips to take home. Either way, you get large portions of piping hot food, the restaurant is always busy, the food is always fresh, the staff helpful and the food is great. Family and friends visit hoping that a visit to the Jolly Fryer will... More

Originally from Yorkshire we know good fish and chips when we get them. These are top quality at a reasonable price. Will be back.
