Great value

This is a great fish restaurant to bring a family to enjoy 'cooked-to-order' fish 'n chips. Portions are very generous and are good value for money. The service is efficient and friendly. Although there is limited car parking outside there is plenty of free parking in the car park opposite or in... read more

Having eaten in this restaurant several times and had the takeaway many many times, i can't fault the generous portions of fish or the friendly service although on Fridays you will find a queue in the evening as they cook to order but it is well worth the wait. Enjoy.

We recently moved down this way. We went here after being recommended this place. We was advised to call and place our order then collect otherwise you will be waiting as the place gets very busy. I got there to collect our order but still had to wait a while. The fish was lovely but the chips were awful :(... More

We travel to the Golden Fillet from Clacton town, where there are an abundance of fish and chip shops, simply because none of these can touch the place for the quality of the food. We have visited here probably 25+ times, and never had a bad meal. The staff are always polite and the prices on a par with other... More

Always have a great meal from this place. Mini cod and chips is great value and they also do grilled fish which is nice. Can be very busy but they do telephone ordering to save a little time

Three adults and two under-fives enjoyed their vist very much. Service was prompt and friendly. I asked about advertised glutenfree , and found out this was a Monday speciality, BUT in the same breath was offered grilled fish instead . Everything was cooked to a T, and very plentiful, served hot to the adults, and we were asked if we... More

Family of 5 all stuffed to the gills with delicious food, cooked with skill & care. Some of us ordered small cod, thank goodness, 2 pieces of thick, golden, crispy fillet & a mountain of chips. Some had the special, dressed crab with salad & boiled spuds, lovely. The kids had scampi, again, huge portions. Orders taken at the table... More
