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

Stopped off for a takeaway I was thrilled to get gluten free so I could eat with the rest of my family. Food was cooked fresh. Staff were helpful and friendly would recommend and return. Many thanks.

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
