Fresh, hot, tasty - delicious meal after a day of exploring the nooks and crannies of Bushmills and hiking the Bushmils Railway Trail.

Plain and simple, delicious fish and chips served with a smile. Travel Advisor requires a larger word account than the above, but honestly there's nothing more to say. Their fish is just really good.

Have been ordering from this takeaway for a number of years and it is always of an excellent quality. I dare anyone to find a better fish supper anywhere

We had this after a long walk. Though we had to wait for our order, it was worthwhile. The fish was large, crisp, delicious and piping hot. Chips were crispy. We sat at a public bench and devoured one 'cod supper' each. It was so awesome!!!

Katelyn and Emma, they answered any questions we had and give us the advise to... More

It's not often I find a chippy that I don't like, but this one certainly falls in to that category. My wife had chicken goujons and chips. These were very bland although the chicken was tender. The BBQ dip was like glue as was my curry sauce. I had the cod supper. I wasn't overly certain that this was cod... More

There is a choice of two chip shops in Bushmills main street. We unfortunately opted for The Hip Chip for a large order for our family and most of the food ended up in the bin. The chips were possibly the worst I have ever had.They felt like a mixture of overcooked and undercooked potato mashed together The two I... More

No, I'm not pulling any punches here, the burnt fish and greasy hard chips at well over £6 were pretty lousy. I wouldn't go back here for a free meal. We had ordered six take out meals and took them back to our B&B and no one was impressed. It had taken near 30 minutes to serve the food. My... More

Solid food, didn't skimp on the size of the fish fillets. Burgers were decent, but you apparently have to ask for toppings on this island.
