Ranked #50 of 87 Restaurants in Deal
Cuisines: Fish & Chips
Description: Traditional British fish n chip takeway with some limited seating. World class fresh fish, batter, hand cut chips, will definitely go back - worth the trip from London for this even if Deal were not such a good place to visit (which it is).

“Not Just Cod and Chips”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

This local fish and chip shop is more adventurous and joined Hugh Fernley Wittingstall's fish fight. They provided some delicious alternatives to the traditional cod and chip and I think it was worth the effort.

You receive excellent value for money, freshly cooked food and a smile. What more can one ask for!

“Worth Travelling To”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

Visited the Blue Mermaid a couple of weeks ago while visiting from Margate. Without a shadow of doubt this was the best cod and chips we have had in a long time. Cooked freshly and extremely tasty at a reasonable price. It may not be good for the planet but today the sun is shining and we will take the 15 mile drive this evening to enjoy the experience once again.

“Excellent F+C”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

Living just around the corner, and using the Blue Mermaid on a fairly regular basis, I'm surprised at the negative reviews. Nothing special. Nothing exceptional. Reliable and well cooked fish and chips. What more can you ask for from a 'chippie'??
