This is everything a dish and chip shop should be - friendly staff, fantastic food and excellent value. A very busy fish and chip shop (always a good sign) which is very efficient and manages to deal with a large number of customers in a small shop very well. Fantastic !

The fish is always good quality and cooked fresh. You get a huge portion of chips. We usually order one large portion & share. The service is friendly and fast. Probably the best chippy in Harwich.

Placed just as you enter Old Harwich,it is small but will take telephone orders,one of the great things is you can buy your fish and chips and then have a very short walk to the sea front and sit on a bench and watch the boats go by while eating your food.

The fish and chips sold here takes me back many years to the old fashioned way of cooking them. They were so delicious. Crisp, fresh and tasty. Had to wait a while to get them but so worth it. We'll be going back!!

Good chips and fresh fish! Always busy but this can only be a good sign. We've never been served bad food, even the gulls fight over the last of the chips!

We do only visit this place occasionally but we have never been disappointed with the service and food. A bit expensive but then you get what you pay for.

Typical fish and chip shop, one if the best in town. Near the sea front so handy if you're on an evening stroll around old harwich. Cost is average, portion sizes are ok. Value for money - probably.

The fish and chips are cooked just like I remember them years ago, great taste, not greasy and very clean chips. We will... More
