“Average chips”
Reviewed February 15, 2014 via mobile

Visited last week and wasn't very impressed. There is a foreign speaking lady on the front desk and she had got my order wrong. The batter on the sausage was hard not crispy and the chips were soggy. The actual location is a bit out the way as it is hidden. Definitely watch out for those pot holes outside. Inside the place is a little outdated and filled with a bit too many fluorescent tags for my liking. There is one more chip shop in Carterton round the corner but we found that one was even worse. Unfortunately not impressed with the standard in this area. Hoping to find a nicer one out of town.

“Always reliable!”
Reviewed December 11, 2013

It's hard to find fish and chips that are consistently good but Smarts rises to the challenge. With a regular clientele from the nearby RAF base they obviously try hard to satisfy our boys in blue.Eat in or carry out - the choice is yours - and the menu extends beyond fish.Easy parking as well but mind the holes in the tarmac!

“Real Fish and Chips”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

Friday night was always going to be busy here, but my cousin persuaded us to try the local chippy. Although busy the food was served rather quickly, the cod we had was very nice and the chips were great. A nice place for some fish and chips at a reasonable price. Large cod and chips 5.50

“Excellent value”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

Very good fish and chips and plenty of it if you're hungry. Eating in is like spending time in a barrack block (below zero on atmosphere) so take away is best.
