Best in town, can't beat them. A good choice menu, and being a small eater I decide from the childrens' menu with no problem. Always cooked fresh to order, and REAL chips!

Forget the stereo type of fish and chips. No grease in sight. The toilets are spotless! The restaurant is immaculate. This obviously sets a high expectation for the staff and food. The staff are magic. Nothing too much trouble. The food. Awesome is probably an understatement. For someone who really does not like fish and chips. I went for a... More

A modern take on fish and chips to eat in or take away. Traditional fare is available but also you can have a reasonable glass of wine, beer and I wholeheartedly recommend the salt and pepper squid and the homemade tartare sauce. Very pleasant staff, very clean restaurant and facilities.Good decor too.

We visited this fish and chip restaurant in march on our way to Spain as we stopped off in folkestone for one night and sampled the fish which was amazing the first time, so naturally on our way back we came through the tunnel and decided to re-visit for lunch. We were welcomed with a big smile by the lovely... More

My husband and I have been going for fish and chips at Papa' s for many years and we have never, ever been disappointed. The food is always consistently good, fresh and well cooked. Service is usually good and the restaurant is clean and tidy although slightly dated in decor. However, we go there for the food not the scenery!... More

We visited during a weekday towards the end of the lunch time rush. As this restaurant is part of the main chippy I thought our order would have been a whole lot quicker, but instead it took ages. Staff were friendly and polite, and the rest of our experience was fine. Just won't be rushing back for more, sorry.

This may not be the best fish & chips I have ever tasted, but it is in my top ten. I had the haddock and my wife had plaice, and they were both tasty and covered in light and crispy batter. Portion sizes were generous and chips were large and hand cut, not those thin things that one gets in... More
