I have been here quite a few times now when I visit Bristol as I really have missed fish and chips since having to go gluten free. The fish and pea fritters are really lovely, freshly cooked, crispy, light and prepared with great care with regards to cross contamination etc. Great service too, lovely people.

Lovely food served by lovely young girl. Always with a smile on her face. Food is of a high quality and priced reasonably (in my opinion) Give it a try. You won't be disappointed at all

We have known Mr. Farrow for more years than I care to remember and I can honestly say he has maintained the quality of the food he serves throughout all of that time. Food is always fresh. Really enjoyed our meal. Really good gluten free choices, interesting to note while we were waiting for our food around 40% of all... More

This place has traditional service and caters for modern eaters! My husband is Gluten Free and we heard about this place so tried it out. Gluten free or not I wouldn't go anywhere else now! There is always a que, frustrating but a good sign, and as it's worth the wait, who cares?! We will definitely be back again soon.

You know that you have found a popular eatery when the local people are queuing outside at past eight p.m with no sign of anyone not prepared to wait! On an overnight stay to watch The Tour of Britain cycle race, I decided to follow my nose and the aroma of fish & chips on the breeze led me here.... More

It's hard to find a good traditional fish and chip shop these days but luckily for me this one's around the corner I had fish and chips and both were cooked well and very tasty. Staff were very pleasant and on the ball for a very busy place. You know a good place by the amount of people waiting for... More

They have Gluten free options all the time and they clearly understand gf requirements - separate utensils and special vinegar for example. Gf batter was light and crispy, almost like tempura. Normal batter was very good too. Chips were the standard fare. Very reasonable prices.

I made a special trip to get some F&C's and I wasn't disappointed. Being Gluten Free can be tough at times but I'd been craving chips for a while. One wet Sunday afternoon I took the trip to Farrows to see what they had to offer as I'd seen good things online. When I got there I was welcomed by... More
