The fish was so fresh and not greasy. The Standard Battered or Breaded Haddock included 2 giant pieces of fish on top of a bed of chips. We could have... More

Come here often as near our house.. I love the fish but chips need a bit more cooking although you can ask for crispy chips . Cooked to order so always fresh

Invariably a queue, but your order is taken as you go in so the food is cooked and ready by the time you get to the front of the queue. Only place I would go for a choice of haddock, the Icelandic is very nice with a slightly differing taste. The chips quality sometimes varies, maybe to do with the... More

If you are looking for a nice "chippie" tea then the Silvery Tay is definitely worth a visit. It doesn't seem to matter which night you go there is a fair chance you will meet someone you know in the queue for a catch-up while your order is freshly made.

Whilst shopping nearby the lovely aroma of fish and chips floated into my nostrils. It was so appealing that I could not resist it and partook of a delicious fish supper.
