Where did those negative reviews come from we have been to Whitestones on numerous occasions and have yet to find anything to complain about with the service quick and with a smile. Just returned home from another excellent meal with 40 other people from our Goodwill Club Farmborough everyone commented how good the fish and chips were again and the... More

We were a family group booked in early evening pre carnival and Whitstones was ready for a very busy night - extra tables for the number of bookings. There were, therefore, plenty of waiting staff being well managed by Nicky. Orders were taken quickly and efficiently, drinks arriving before food, food very soon after. Fish and chips were as good... More

I have been to Whitstone's in a coach party (several times) and in a small group with my family. It never fails to impress. The food is excellent, and is equalled by the service, nothing is too much trouble for those serving, and they are always so blooming cheerful! Being this good it fills up quickly, but the girls will... More

The best place to eat traditional English chip shop food. Uber friendly staff, immaculately clean and a bar to boot! Forget grease and indigestion this place makes the humble chip into an art form. Really fresh fish prepared battered, grilled or poached, the tastiest faggots, even dressed crab to name but a few of the delights on offer. Dont go... More

Visited for lunch 04/11/14, just needed a quick lunch. Parking is available, but insufficient. The carpark is shared with a small Coop, and was full. This is a fish and chip restaurant. We were quickly seated, the waitress was pleasant and efficient. Ordered standard cod, chips and mushy peas. The food was very good, for fish and chips. Small cod,... More

Working in area so checked out reviews. I was expecting the holy grail of fish and chips, what I got was just bog standard grub. Was not worth the effort, maybe some people should set themselves higher standards. I will try again before heading home next month and if better will review.

At last after moving down here a proper fish and chip shop serving great meals for eat in and take out just the ticket Parking can be a problem as it shares parking with a mini Co-op store which can be busy at some times in the day as shoppers mix with chip shop clients Great indoor seating area with...

BUT without doubt the worst curry sauce ever, they need to change to a paste mix, either Mayflower or Goldfish. So glad we did not pour the sauce over our chips or they would have been ruined. ANYWAY - the chips, fish, fagggots (lovely gravy), home made mushy peas were some of the best we have ever had anywhere in... More

My other half and I ate here recently, the staff were pleasant and helpful, the food was reasonably priced, we both had fish and chips with 1 portions of mushy peas-enough for 2. The fish was fresh, tasty and moist and the batter was lovely and not greasy, the chips were fresh and tasty too, again not greasy! The resturant... More
