Great fish & chips, cooked to order when we visited on a sunday evening. Well worth the wait. You can eat in also. One tiny, tiny point not good (for us) the bread and butter was a cob not sliced bread, and not very well buttered.

Every time we go away we always have Fish and Chips on the first night, always look at the reviews on Tripadvisor first at this Chippie came out best. After having our traditional fish and chip supper, I can see why, the food is excellent, my fish was cooked to order so the batter was nice and fresh and the... More

We visited this lovely establishment whilst on our holiday and was impressed with the size of the menu. Plenty of choice to be had for everyone. I ordered a cod and chips and when this came out it was huge but perfectly cooked although I ended up giving some of it to my hubby and son, freshly cooked fish and... More

I stopped in Burnham-On-Sea on the way back from Cheddar Gorge with a couple of friends. We fancied some nice fish and chips by the sea so we went to tripadvisor to have a look and this place sounded good by the reviews. This was not the case. The chips were cold, the fish tasted awful and the price was... More

Very busy on a Friday night in August. Prices not that cheap but the fish chips and peas for our supper were very good. Service seemed a little slow but I think the 'kitchen' was a little overwhelmed by the demand. We took our 4 dinners back to a friends caravan and had a great supper. Can certainly recommend but...
