Our weekly Friday treat. Been going for many years. Fish and chips fried fresh and golden to order. Restaurant clean and spacious. Plenty of tables, but always busy when we go. Friendly fast service. You can't smell the place from yards away as you can most chippys. We had occasion to complain recently. The fish had been a little overcooked... More

Great fish in batter if you order it for take away. Not greasy, beautifully cooked and great eaten straight from the packing. Chips, in my opinion need more cooking to make them crisp! A case of what you prefer really.

I go here once in a while for a takeaway and I am never disappointed. The food is always excellent, the chips being my favourite. The fish I have had from here before was massive, not too greasy and the batter was lovely. Their burgers are really nice, and their portion sizes are huge. A regular chips easily feeds both...

It took 30 minutes for the food to turn up, when it did it was half cold. It was not as is they were busy, my wife and I were the only people in there. Out of all the restaurants I have eaten at over the years this has to be one of the worse, if not the worst. I... More

We visited here of a rainy afternoon, so it wasn't very busy. Although we have had fish and chips here several times and they were always very good, we decided this time to have steak and kidney pie with chips for a change. we were not disappointed. the pie was served piping hot, had a moist filling and succulent pastry....

Whilst on holiday on the Isle of Wight we visited Ryde, and found "Wights" . Excellent menu, food and service. Would certainly recommend you visit them if you are in Ryde.

Visited this evening after reading the reviews, myself & the wife opted for the 'Wights Wale' purely as we both love mushy peas, and for the price was included along with bread & butter! For our girls aged 4 & 5 we just ordered 1 x 'Kidz fish n chips' with a spare plate, which I'm so glad as the... More

We stopped in for a snack while exploring the town of Ryde. My wife doesn't really like fish and chips, but we both loved the fish here. Very fresh and well cooked! Great little restaurant!
