I nipped into this chip shop on the way home the other night, I suddenly fanced a small kebab. The smell from here was amazing and I was very hungry. Whilst I was waiting on my food I was aware that there were 3 different delivery drivers coming and going, they seemed very busy with lots of staff. The place... More

We had nipped in here for a take away a couple of weeks ago. They do a great range of stuff. Food was good although we did need to wait quite a bit for it. Might be worth phoning your order in before you get there. If you spend £15 on hot food, then you can get two free kids... More

First visit to this chippy after hearing such good things and it didn't disappoint. Food was being freshly cooked while we were in the shop. We ordered chicken pakora, mushrooms and a portion of chips. Plenty for the 2 of us and all fresh tasting. Friendly service too from the staff in the shop. We collected in person rather than...

We ordered food for delivery from here & waited 2hrs & 10mins for it to be delivered .I phoned them 1hr & 10mins after ordering & they told me they had just left & were on there way. It only took them 1hr to deliver to my door when I'm 15mins away. Will not be going back there again.

For our local family run chippy who have been established for over 40 years you can't fault them in any way. The queue to get served is always out the door at Giovanni's - need I say more! In reading other reviews I see this Fish & Chip shop is being confused with a Restaurant - which it is not.

Need I say more than what's in the title? This is a very busy local take away. Serves great tasty fresh food. The staff despite being busy and under pressure are always cheery and friendly.
