I was aware there was a fish and chip shop there but only went to try it the other day, and what a treat. The restaurant itself is very modern inside, with subdued lighting, warm decor and comfortable seating, nothing like your usual fish and chip shop. You cannot book and we were perhaps fortunate that we didn't wait long... More

We usually use the takeaway which is really good but thought as we had friends round we'd try the restaurant. It was very busy but we were seated quickly by a nice waitress. The fish and chips is excellent, really crispy batter and the little extras are a nice touch. It's fully licensed and my husband enjoyed being able to... More

I come from Southend-On-Sea (one would think the home of good fish and chips) but it's so hard nowadays to find anywhere half decent. This is by far one of the best chip shops I have ever been too, possibly even slightly better than Golden Union in Oxford Circus and that is also incredibly good. We took mine and my... More

Exactly what the title says... The best Fish and chips I've personally had and I've eaten and tried many across the UK. The batter is light and crisp and best of all it isn't oily! Happy happy days!

I love fish and chips, i will always drive the extra miles for my taste. I live in Shirley and our local shop is closed for holiday. Googled the next closest and McDermotts came up......award winning does not normally equate to ones expectations. Love it Love it love it. Wednesday lunchtime food tasted like Friday food, fresh clean crispy light... More

McDermott's continues to thrive. It never steps outside the narrow confines of being "a chip shop with a restaurant attached", but it does what it does very well indeed. It is invariably busy. The place is clean and the staff are warm and friendly. The menu is essentially fish and chips or fish and chips, with or without peas, pickles... More

I have been to the famous McDermotts's a few times now. Always put off going as thought it might be over rated. Not so. First rate fish and service was top notch. I wish I had this business.

Even though it is quite a drive to go there we regularly go to get a dose of fish and chips. They have really got it well set up and everything is cooked to order. It may not be the cheapest but is definitely the best in the area.

Wow...quite possibly the best "Chippy" in England, certainly the best inland. The fish was superior--large portions and very fresh. No leaving the bottom side on the plate, quality through and through. Coming back again...
