“Am surprised...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

...at the couple of bad reviews below as I have always found Bishops to lead the way for fish and chips in Belfast. I would always have wandered up from Lavery's after watchin the footy and tucked into a fish supper or chicken goujons and chips. Whatever I'd get I'd know it'd be good gear! After a feed you can head over to the Maud's counter for some pooh bear (honeycomb) ice-cream. You get loads given to ya as well !

“awful”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2014

Went to Bishops today as an early birthday treat , as i hadn't been in years. Waited a good ten minutes on the food , even thought there was only three other customers in the place. When the food arrived it looked disgusting. The fish was greasy, the batter wasn't crispy and it looked as if it was cooked yesterday and just reheated. The chips were cold and soggy. I took one piece and i couldn't even stomach another piece. The whole lot went in the bin. Bishop's used to be an awarding winning restaurant but not no more. Totally disappointed

“Awful”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2014 via mobile

Waited a good five Mins are so even though there was no customers, just thought food was cooking. Spotted the server put fries into box and pass them to the frier who reheated them, when we got our food chicken burger was clearly not freshly cooked either. Most of the food went in the bin. Would not recommend
