The staff here are always very friendly and the portions are always very big, we've been getting chips here for around 5 years. It has everything you expect from a good chip shop, but don't expect any frills.

Waited a long time for a burger. I mentioned I was short on time, and very rudely, he replied with a shrug of the shoulders. Bye then

We had 2 x cod and 1 x large chips between us, with a curry sauce. The chips were a very large portion all of which were scraps not a full chip amongst them. The fish was in a mushy batter and the fish itself...was tough. I don’t know when the fish was cooked but it wasn’t for a good few hours before selling it. On the plus side curry sauce was okay but not much too mess up with that though.More

Tried to give this review 0! Chips were either hard or greasy, the sausage in batter was not sausage but patty (reconstituted meat) it tasted disgusting and was inedible! Only went to Smarts because the chip shop on Ladygrove was closed. Will NOT make that...mistake again - don't waste your money yeuk!More

Best fish and chips in Didcot. Top of the Broadway with parking just outside. Fish are very good portions and the large chips take some finishing.

We're regulars at Smarts and it's the best chippy in Didcot. Exceptionally friendly owner, great tasting food and really reasonable prices. What more could you want?!

The food is always very nice, the price is good and the staff (owners?) are friendly and welcoming. Although the range is broad, if they also did fish fritters and scraps I'd give it one more star in the rating.

Very generous portion of chips tough the fish was, by far, the greasiest I have ever had and not a patch on any of the other fish and chip shops I have reviewed. Each to their own, this one's not fo me.

Really great place. The fish was crispy I even got to pick it (small things) and the chips were perfect. I'd definitely go again, just remember to take cash!
