“Excellent Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

As an english traveller from Luton, I had a very good meal with the first real english cup of tea.
Although it looks like a standard fish & chip shop down a narrow alleyway, it is a short walk from
the station. The owner makes you very welcome and is english, it may not look very grand but
food quality, prices and owner more than make up for this. I highly recommend this to any UK
traveller.

“Good Chippy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

Had fish, chips & peas and tasted like any proper chippy in England. Had to wait a while for it but well worth the wait.

“Good old Chish & Fips”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

Nice piece of Cod & Chips and not too pricey, it's a bit hidden round the back, and there were works going on nearby at the time of visit

“A taste of home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

After two weeks of hotel food just had to have chips ( not American fries). Was not at all disappointed . The cod was cooked in a light batter and mushy peas were excellent. Go and have some and support a British business. Well done girls! Oh have a glass of wine whilst your food is cooked fresh for you.
