Freshly cooked to order.

Beautiful fish. Piping hot crispy chips. Friendly service. A pleasant eating area. Recommended. Don't let the slightly down at heal feel of the surrounding area (charity shops, Poundland, Iceland etc) put you off.

Best fish and chips I have had in a long time , regular customer , the tar tar sauce is amazing and by far the best homemade I have had ,only drawback is if you sit in , the drinks are very expensive and so is the bubblegum ice cream that they offer for children , I would suggest takeout... More

I visited Wights after reading the positive reviews on tripadvisor, it lived up to expectations! The waitress was attentive and friendly. I ordered the smaller portion of cod and chips, it was still plenty! If you are looking for great fish and chips served with a smile then Wights is the perfect place for you!

Excellent fish and chip shop, staff friendly and didn't mind my granddaughter eating her own food as she is not in to fish and chips. Fish cooked to perfection and the chips and mushy peas were lovely. Shame decor is a little tired and the sign outside is missing some letters .

In a hurry for something to eat so popped into Wights for Fish & Chips - couldn't have asked for more, polite friendly staff, freshly cooked fish and chips - enjoyed them so much I would have gone back for more (if it wasn't for my wife thinking otherwise - always somebody to spoil the enjoyment I suppose). Well done... More
