“Chips with toppings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2014

Lovely friendly chippy with great idea, chips topped with amazingly tasty home cooked toppings. Spoilt for choice but the smoked BBQ pulled pork is hard to resist. The battered fish is the best I've ever had. Worth travelling to!

“Made our day to see this chippy open again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2014

The Ambergate Chip Shop is a traditional chippy and has always been excellent. It was a sad day when it closed. It has reopened under new ownership and the standard of excellence lives on. Spotlessly clean, nice little dine in area and fish and chips cooked to order. Very tasty cod with crispy batter and lovely chips. Will become our regular chippy again. By far the best in the area.

“New Owner, New Business! Very impressed now!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014

Recently Ambergate Chip Shop has been taken over. The owner is really friendly and as importantly knows what he's doing. I had Fish and chips in there expecting the worst and not only was my faith restored but it was certainly the nicest fish and chips I'd had in a while and that includes George's in Belper. The chip shop is small, very clean and the food now 'thankfully' is very good. Good value and an excellent friendly service too.

“Best chippy around by far!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2014

We go to Ambergate chip shop quite a lot since it reopened as it's so delicious! I keep trying to eat healthy but always get lured back. Everything is always spot on. Tried the wild west themed toppings when they were on (which are coming back soon I think, and I definitely recommend!!) the pulled pork was amazing and all cured in house which is very impressive. Treated my colleagues to fish and chips today and all were very impressed! Also, Iain the owner is very friendly and has really stamped his mark on the place.
