“I agree with comments”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2012 via mobile

The last time we used the ashvale we ordered two take away fish and chips, just like the previous comments we were shocked at the ridiculous portion size, I counted 19 chips and a piece of fish which could have passed for a sardine, I took a photo intending to complain but decided that the company must be aware of this.
I agree also with the comments regarding staff presentation and service, previously we had used the upstairs dining and waited that long for the waitress to appear that I phoned the restaurant to ask where she was !!!
More fool us for using the restaurant again.
The place needs a good sort out,staff attitude, attention to detail, cleanliness and please please please get rid of the abundance of anti customer notices scattered about the place.

“Such unhappy staff and poor service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2012

Over the years and occasionally had a takeaway from the Ashvale, the portion sizes have reduced dramatically and very overpriced for what you get. The staff are unhappy and every time I have been in, the staff appear grubby and covered in food stains. Whilst waiting at the till point to order food, I have been ignored and not acknowledged. The food is generally ok but the portions are far from generous

Good, reliable fish and chip restaurant. Seating area upstairs, above take away. Layout and furnishings now becoming a bit tired.

“yummy fish and chips”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2012

The upstairs restaurant is nothing like a typical fish and chippy, it is well furnished, airy and decorated as tastefully as mainsream restaurants. Staff are on hand to help with the menu regarding choices for those with small appetites or vice versa. I always have the fish and chips because it is such a treat but there is a huge choice. A glass of wine or a beer to accompany? No bother for the Girls, as would be a hot drink, scones and cakes. Mmmm

“Very poor takeaway”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2012

Had a white pudding supper from here last night & when the wife gave it to me, I thought she had been eating the chips on the way home. Hardly any, not enough to make a decent sized potato. What was in them was ok, but the pudding was greasy as well. Very poor
