I recently visited the hip chip after being told to go there by the locals of Bushmills and I was not disappointed I was greeted by two young females with a big friendly smile, I got chatting to the young ladies and caught there names. 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.

The best fish and chips we had in two weeks of travel, prepared by some really nice people. A takeaway restaurant, not a sit down dining place, and a great value. So glad we stopped!

Great little place right on the high street in Bushmills with a table to sit outside if the weather holds. Our children particularly enjoyed the pizzas which are very reasonable in price! Thanks! We'll be back!

You will find that most of the restaurants in Bushmills close their kitchens very early at night...this is how we discovered the Hip Chip. Open late and serving absolutely delicious food for great prices. A great tip that our B&B owner gave us was that you can actually get takeaway food from the Hip Chip and take it into the... More
