These fish and chips are the best. I have to try very hard not to eat there too often, or I would be joining the whales on Hunstanton beach!

I have visited the golden fillet many times now. The fish is always perfect, beautifully cooked and lovely crisp batter. The chips taste Fresh and very nicely cooked. Friendly staff, good prices. Nothing but praise.

Very fresh! We had cod and haddock. Chips are always nicely done and we have garden peas. Portions are extremely generous.

Delicious freshly caught and cooked Fish and Chips. If you want your fish grilled they are very happy to oblige.we have fish and chips from here every Friday. They also take telephone orders so you know whether what you want is available or not. It is always a very busy venue
