What an amazing place! You can have anything gluten free and they are regulated by the coeliac society so you can put complete trust in them! We had gluten free scampi (I haven't eaten this since I found out I was coeliac) and it was the best scampi my partner had ever had. We had a gluten free goats cheese... More

After reading the reviews on here we got two cod and chips for takeaway: we were not impressed. The portions were on the small side. We were not asked if we wanted salt and vinegar and didn't think to check before leaving - there wasn't any as we found out ten minutes largest by the sea front. The fish batter... More

Love the light batter option, & numerous other fish coating options to cater for different diets. Very generous portions. Never been let down by a poor meal yet & we have been a weekly visitor for a few months now. Changed to this chippy after another well known local one started selling terrible fish, a thin slither of fish in... More

The waitress was helpful in moving chairs around to accommodate a wheelchair and was polite and efficient. Choice of batters and breadcrumbs, including gluten free. A... More

I feel bad after reading the previous review as I think they were leaving to deliver our food. So apologies for this. I had arranged for Browns to cater for my wife's surprise 50th birthday, which they did fantastically. All the food was delivered on time and nice and hot. 44 cod and chips, sausage and chips, mushy peas and... More

Went Somerford earlier and arrived a good 10 minutes before closing time. After queuing for a while, along with a few others, we got to the counter only to be told that the guy had to be somewhere by 8.15pm and they would not serve anyone else! We and the others turned away were not happy! No way to treat... More
