“Excellent. ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

This is a fantastic traditional chippy. No kebabs, burgers etc- just what they do best. The fish comes fresh and people know this, hence the big queues. Due to a dietary requirement, I often ask for a haddock without batter, which is always done without complaint and tastes great, and shows the real quality of the fish. Always a friendly welcome from one of the few remaining decent chip shops in the area. Hope they keep going for years.

“Superb Fish and Chips”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2013

After returning from working away on the South Coast for 9 months I decided to try my local fish and chip shop again, what a shock, the fish and chips are brilliant.
The chips are cooked to perfection, they all separate when emptied from the packaging, virtually no grease and are crisp, the fish has a crispy batter with white flakes of fish, excellent.
No repeating with that awful after taste and 2 hours later you want to eat them again, not like other fish and chips where you wished you hadn't eaten them at all.
There is one problem though you have to queue for ages due to its popularity, well good things are worth waiting for, try this chip shop you won't be disappointed.

“The Best Fish & Chip Shop....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

I have enjoyed many traditional Chip Shop favourites at Ashton's over the last 25yrs, the fish is fresh & better than any other I've tried, Chips are delicious cooked to perfection, you can tell the potatoes are good & the oil is clean.
Dave & Norma who prepare, cook & serve our food, always have a warm welcome & a smile.
When I have overseas visitors its always on the tour to enjoy a good English Chip Shop Cafe experience when eating in the quaint dining room.
We often come from our home in Buxton & when I'm working in Great Moor I enjoy a take away out of the paper.
Whether its fish sausage, pudding or pies I've never been disappointed.
Anyone for for Fish or Pies.... Yes Please.
Thanks

Don't mind queueing on a Friday evening at this popular fish & chip shop. Friendly staff work tirelessly to provide you with good quality & tasty fish & chips. Great value for a fab Friday tea!

“Quite Simply The Beat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

These are the best fish and chips for miles. I've been to loads of places and tried Fish and Chips including Whitby and other fishing ports. Ashton's are better and the service is great too.
