Proper traditional fish and chips

We had great fish and chips here. Fresh fish with a great batter – light, crunchy and not at all greasy. Lovely chips too. Friendly staff. Pretty bare bones decor in the restaurant though.

Set well away from the beach we decided to give this chippy a try based on trip advisor reviews. We were not disappointed. We decided to eat in. Fairly basic cafe setting but clean and tidy. Lovely fish and chips. Would definitely recommend you give it a try.

Had a first visit to this establishment this weekend and am I glad I did! My partner and I both had the Cod and Chips which was excellent and came with mushy peas and bread & butter. The batter was light and crispy, the fish moist and tasty and the chips were also crispy. Will definitely visit again.

I was disappointed not to see any roast or southern fried chicken on the menu as this would be my normal choice, but went for... More

We had a lovely family teatime meal at Wights while visiting Ryde. Having a 2 year old and a 4 year old eating out can be a nightmare. The staff were lovely and the food came fast, perfect when you have two hungry munchkins to feed. The quality of food was excellent, probably the best fish and chips we have... More

My Wife and I visited this Fish and chip shop and Restaurant 4 years ago and enjoyed the food,so on our return with my Sister in law and her partner we decided to take them to sample the food. The Wights Whale fish, chips,mushy peas and bread and butter was huge and very tasty. Very friendly service as well.
