We chose to visit on a Monday evening as the restaurant caters specifically for the glucose intolerant then. We all had Fred's Finest, which included fish, chips, a very generous serving of delicious mushy peas and a beverage of choice. Excellent value. We also ordered individual salads, which were also good. Bread was included, so it's good to make sure... More

I have only had take away from this establishment but each time it has been cooked fresh and there is nearly always a queue to both eat in and for the take away. Delicious and light batter with the fish cooked to perfection - no soggy bits.

This is a bog standard fish and chips shop. Most high streets have 4-5 of equal or better quality. Good food - do not get me wrong, but I am totally confused by the hype. Way too expensive for what it is. Queues are too long. Shop is poorly designed, and I suspect is specifically designed to make it look... More

A trip to the seaside fish and chips are a must. We found this shop last year on a day out and hunted it down again this trip. There is a massive queue but they take orders and serve you as quickly as humanly possible. There is also the option to have a sit down meal but parking is a... More

Thought I would try out Westbournes famed chippy. Decided to "sit in", small wait as Friday is traditional fish day. Staff very pleasant, nice atmosphere in restaurant, fish n chips were very nice. Lunchtime special gets you cod, chips, mushy pease & a drink and complimentary still or sparkling water is offered. In and out for £8.40 / person.

The wait for your fish and chips is well worth it. The wait can be long here as the q flows out the door most evenings but that just tells you the full story.Forget harry Ramsden's this is the real Mccoy fresh and crisp the fish is Excellent and the chips just flow over i never finish mine. Highly recommend... More
