“Very tasty food but chips are variable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012 via mobile

I have been here many times and i think that the fish and chips here are excellent, however the chips can be a little bit variable on occasions not sure why?! The fish and mushy peas are consistently good though. Not bad value for money.

“Petrou Brothers? where has the quality gone”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

This used to be a busy fish and chip shop with people eating inside and out but since the above have let it fade, it's rubbish. Fish is small and chips well disgusting full of oil. No thanks not again

“Ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

It is so hard to walk past this chip shop, like all good chip shops. If you make it through the doors you won't be disappointed the fish melts in your mouth, covered in light crispy batter. The chips are very nice and they do a lovely fish cake. Eat in or take away both to be highly recommended.

“greasy fish, fish had a lot of better and little fish inside, loads of chips.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

I felt that fish and chips in a box standing outside was overpriced. You can sit inside but you are charged quite a bit more even though you are likely to order a drink with your meal, really is it to much to let people have a seat inside in the warm and eat out of a box, it appears that you are charged for the plate and cutlery.
