Visited on a Tuesday at 8.15pm. Doesn't close until 10pm. No bread buns and the last sausage. Really? I come for a chippy from here often but it was as if they were in a hurry to get home and didn't want to put more sausages in or cut and butter another few buns despite having just under two hours...

The food was lovely! The fish, chicken nuggets and spam fritters are always cooked perfectly and the chips, well what can I say were glorious! Been in a few times and always greeted by a smile. Although one of the, sorry to say it "older staff" arnt always so happy!

Called again for fish and chips for myself and my granddaughter had chicken nuggets and chips. The fish was beautifully white, the chips golden and crisp with a soft centre, the chicken nuggets were actually pieces of chicken not the usual reformed chicken. Once again Smiths Chippy hits the mark the nest in shields.

Smiths Chippy does the best chips on Ocean Road bar none. The chips are double fried for that extra crispness, are nice and chunky and you get a good size portion to boot.So if you like your chips look no further than Smiths.

Never really write reviews but feel I need to. Bought Fish and Chip from Smiths many times over the years, although not for a long time. I bought Fish and Chips x2 last night and couldn't eat the Fish as it tasted horrible. My girlfriend ate hers but said the fish was dark coloured. She was fine this morning so... More
