Good food but short hours

The fish and chips are very good but the restaurant closes at 5:30 in the winter and 6 PM in the summer.

We are locals and taking our kids here is one of those things our kids will always have fond memories of, and so will we. They have great fish and chips and their tartar sauce is spot on! The kids favorite part is their soft-serve cone after dinner. So very many different flavors, it's an adventure each time. Quite frequently... More

On our first visit to this area we stopped here for lunch. The food is prepared in the bus and the seating is in a courtyard. Lots of places serve fish & chips but not too many do it the way I like. i was pleasantly surprised at what a great job they did even though they were extremely busy.... More

We arrived early for check-in and on a main corner is this double decker bus made into a restaurant. Mainly fish and chips. We ate there and it was fantastic. Went there a few times. Very friendly and helpful people.

The fish and chips at Fairhaven Fish and Chips are actually really good but more times than not we go there and they aren't open. They don't update their "website" (Facebook page) so you can't go by that. This evening they were closed because it was too hot. It's in the mid 70's here with some wind! Normal summer weather....

Fish and Chips served from a double decker bus. This was a fun experience. You order at one window, wait five or ten minutes and pick up your order at another window and then eat at one of the outdoor tables. Delicious fish and chips!!! We ate here several times.

Based on Tripadvisor reviews, we ate at the Fairhaven Fish and Chips and were not unhappy. The salmon fish and chips were better than Ivar’s! Need we say more! Both the fish and chips were freshly cooked; they do say that they cook upon ordering so it is not “fast food.” We would want to go back!!! And soon!!

Overall a very quality "fast food meal". The salmon fish and chips have incredible taste and are clearly freshly prepared. The french fries have a great seasoning. The service is quick for being freshly cooked (about a ten minute wait during a busy time at the location). The area that lost a star is that they charge a quarter for... More

This eatery has excellent location, friendly stuff and real fish and chips. However, no beer and Wi-Fi. Without these two items that modern society cannot live without, the visit is less enjoable. I could live without Internet, but fish and chips without beer does not make the visit a complete British experience.

Have eaten here several times. Lots of fun in nice weather. Great fish and chips, this coming from a girl who grew up in B'ham and has a British hubby!
