Desperate for a gluten free fish and chip fix as my local in Worcestershire only does GF once a month. As we were in Bristol did a search and discovered that GF is available here all the time. Seperate friers for gluten free products and care taken in handling them once cooked to avoid cross contamination. Lovely batter on the... More

Great fish always cooked to order. Delicious chunky chips. Quick and courteous service. Definately one of the best fish and chippys in Bristol, as testified by their numerous awards!

Absolutely delicious, beautifully crispy, gluten free fish and chips. I actually never thought that I would see the day, and now this place is a short walk from my house! The service is always friendly and quick - and the food is really great quality - I highly recommend it

My favorite fried dish has always been fish and chips. At Farrow's, you can find a gluten free option. The place doesn't look too special and you cannot sit there to eat. However, the cod was so good...The medium one was enough : quantity and quality.

The customer service from the young lady was the best I have seen. No grunts and mumbles here; just friendly banter. Natural coloured mushy peas too were noted and for the first time in my life, I saw that they actually remove any chips that are green or have bits of skin still left on them; the brown bits. The...

It's dangerous to have such a wonderful fish and chip shop at the top of our street but it's also fabulous. Friendly staff, generous portions and very good quality food.

Got home only to be disappointed, chips looked like they were scraps,hard burnt and just awful. We couldn't even get a chip butty out of them. Latley we've come... More

I have been to a few difference places in Bristol but always come back to Farrows. Good variety on the menu, big portions and friendly staff. Their chips are the perfect "chipshop chips" and the fish is always great. Having recently moved house, I now drive past 2 closer chippies just to come here.
