“Very Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

We loved our fish and chip takeaway with gravy and a great chinese style curry sauce.

Portion size was very good and great value for money. The owner was really friendly and as it was our first day in Bridport, she offered some great advice on where to go in Dorset.

Before we left Dorset we made sure we ate at Longs again. Definitely would come here again on our next visit.

“Best in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

We have our fish and chip supper on a Saturday sometime we it in and sometimes we take it down to the beach what ever takes our fancy at the time. If we are taking away we always ring our order through to avoid waiting as they get very busy specialy in the Holliday time.
The quality and quantities are excellent and the food stays hot for a very long time.
The restaurant is very inviting, clean and airy even on the hottest of days the menu is exstencive with a dish to please all and a plus is a well stocked bar.
All in all a good place to dine.

“Take away - OK but nothing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

It is a tradition of ours when on holiday near the sea to spend one evening meal with take away fish and chips on the beach so Long's was our choice when we were in Bridport.

The food is cooked to order so that augured well and the fish was well cooked, the batter about right but a bit greasy, the chips were also a bit greasy and had stuck together by the time we got to the beach, possibly not helped by take away being in a paper bag rather than a cardboard box as is more usual these days.

On the plus side, they do price regular and large portions of chips and fish separately so you could have e.g. regular chips and large fish, we had regular portions of each at just over £5 per person and that was an adequate size of meal.

Since we were going to the beach in nearby West Bay in hindsight we would have been better getting them from one of the huts around the harbour as there was always one or two open in the evening.

“greasiest fish batter ever”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

This place had everything going for it, great building, location, menu and delightful service.
Had the greasiest fish batter I have ever had. As I was a family guest I didn't want to complain so I just ate the fish and a little batter, What a crying shame.......I live in Asia and anticipated this meal for a long time. It looked rather greasy, I put my knife on the batter and oil oozed out.......I have never seen that before..
Took two Rennies and Alka Salzer later in the night,
Come on England, don't let us down like this, we're known for fish and chips, this was very poor.
So disappointing. Having read the reviews I thin k this was a "bad" night or a change of cook. The fish wasn't fresh either- frozen- a few miles from the sea. Pfffffff.

“Fish & Chip excellence”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014 via mobile

My wife and I have eaten fish and chips in many locations around the world and sometimes we'll remark "that was a good plate of fish."
Yesterday we parked the car in Bridport and immediately saw Longs so we decided to visit for lunch.
Service was prompt and we both chose cod and chips. One taste was all it took before we stared at each other in disbelief! We had stumbled upon PERFECT fish and chips. Light crisp batter, not too greasy, wrapped around thick flaky fish which was moist and piping hot throughout. The chips were medium cut, golden and slightly crisp outside but melted in your mouth.
Enough said, I'm starting to drool just thinking about this meal! Bravo!
