Description: At Yans we have been serving proper traditional fish and chips since 1969, started by Yan then taken over by Steve, Father and Son. We love frying up our nation's favourite meal. Our success comes from our commitment to quality. Our philosophy is simple - we only use the best and freshest finest ingredients, obtained locally where possibleOur scrumptious fish and chips are fried in Frymax pure vegetable oil, which is less than 1% trans-fat. We buy all our fish from sustainable sources and we even know the name of the trawler that caught it. Our potatoes are carefully selected throughout the year and we taste every batch to get the best possible chips. We are also noted for our homemade rissoles, fresh daily cooked rotisserie chickens. Our curry gravy and batter mix is unique to ourselves only. We filter our oils every day, it reduces the risk of the oil breaking down and penetrating the food, therefore, reducing fat content. Our good name is always dependent on the goodness of our food, it is that simple

We sometimes get fish and chips on our way home here as it is our local. The chips are always cooked nicely. Fish always tastes fresh, and they always offer you lemon on your fish, which is a nice touch. The service here is always very friendly and prompt.

“Great FIsh & Chips - worth travelling”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

We used to live on Whitchurch road and Yan's was our local "chippy". Since we moved away, we've tried several others but none have matched the quality. The batter is crispy and the chips are perfect! We always have a friendly welcome and the service is excellent.
Parking is usually easy on the street outside. The only downside is that there is quite often a wait while they cook up fresh batches of fish or chips - not sure if they understand the "fast food" component of Fish & Chips.
Anyway... if you pop in you'll quickly realise that Yan's has developed a regular clientelle and this is for good reason.... great quality, reasonable prices and a friendly welcome.
(... and PS. my wife says I should mention they have a 5 star hygiene rating!)
