We think fish & chips is a bit of a treat and the coastguard take away was excellent; good fish and the chips were done golden brown, the way I like them.

The Coastguard fish and chip shop and Elliott's Restaurant adjoining are the longest established on the Island. They have an ideal location at Eastoke Corner on the southern shore and are massively popular, with huge queues on fine summer days. The owner has invested greatly in top of the range fryers and sources his fish from selected fleets. This is... More

I've been here loads of times and it's usually pretty good - we often bring friends when they come to visit. Today's offering was awful - overcooked dry fish and lukewarm bendy chips. I was starving so I ate the fish anyway but left the chips. The waitress was very apologetic when we said how awful it all was and... More

Simply the best, you just can't beat it for fresh tasting fish and the chips are something else, special and fantastic...so good it conjures up childhood memories for long summer days playing on the beach before that essential meal on paper down by the beach before the sun set on another wonderful day :)

A combined fish and chip takeaway and sit down restaurant, worth visiting for their first class chips alone, which are golden and crispy on the outside and cooked to perfection inside. The restaurant menu offers way more than just fish and chips, so something for everyone!

Always popular both for Fish & Chips and dining in the smallish inside part, great food and great value. I have been using this chippy since the mid '70s and it's consistently good, can't eat fish myself but the non fishy alternatives are good and my wife tells me the fish is exceptional
