“Excellent fish and chips”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2012

The food is always good. I've either had the credit crunch lunch or the fish and chip meal for two. Never had a bad meal and good value for money.

“Best Chip Shop Award? Only Chip Shop More Like.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2012

Only went here once, Saturday 25th February. Four people behind the counter but only one serving and he could only manage to take one order at a time, so a long wait ensued. The order was 1 fish and 1 chicken, but they had sold out of chicken, Saturday tea time and no chicken, didn't find that out until ordering, a small hand written "No Chicken" would have not gone amiss, this is the only chip shop I have been in that didn't sell vinegar and the chips were little more than burnt offerings, fish was soggy, sausages tasteless, unfortunately absolutely terrible quality of both food and service. Thankfully it was a one off visit not to be repeated.

“Fantastic fish and chips”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2012

I have eaten here a few times and it never fails to impress. The restaurant is clean, if a little spartan and my only slight gripe is that the wooden benches are not overly comfortable. The fish is perfectly fresh and has that 'milky' appearance that you only get with really good cod; they also serve haddock and scampi etc. They offer a 'credit crunch lunch' for about £6, for which you get fish, chips, a side of your choice e.g. mushy peas and a drink. The chips are to die for and everything is excellent quality but the fish and the batter are the real stars. I travel especially to Alderley Edge to sample their fish and chips and am looking forward to my next visit!
