Excellent fresh fish, lovely new potato chips, cooked fresh and great friendly service. Everything was hot and stayed hot until we got home. Definitely worth going inland to buy.

Had an amazing fish supper from here. The fish was generous in size and the batter was crispy and very tasty. I ordered a small chips and struggled to eat it all. If you are in Freshwater then you would be a fool not to buy from them.

We've been coming to the island for 3 years and a holiday wouldn't be complete without these excellent fish and chips - taken down and eaten on Feshwater Bay beach. Perfection!

Had read a few reviews before our stay in Colwell Bay and decided that we would definitely be paying a visit - we were not disappointed! Friendly and efficient staff, fresh cod, light 'n' crispy batter and huge portion of perfectly cooked chips. We wish our chippy was as good as this one!

We rushed in as they were about to close & they very kindly sold us the last piece of fish a sausage & loads of chips, some of which I think they were about to eat themselves. We ate it on the beach at Colwell bay & it was delicious. Lovely friendly people.

You crunch through delicate zesty batter (not a sloppy bit in sight) and into a generous mouth-watering fillet of fish. Cooked to the same perfect specification, whatever your choice. Similarly, the deeply fried goujons of potato (to good to be called mere chips) also perfect in texture, taste and quantity are a delight even on their own. I have visited... More
