“The best Fish and Chips around”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

I've been visiting for years and the standard is as high as ever. I always have cod and chips, the portions are massive, perhaps even too big. The chips are excellent. At lunchtime, cod and chips with a drink is £6.50 or so, so great value.

“Best in Co.Antrim by a country mile.”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

Been going to this chippy for years. Its always great even when busy. The chips are the best Ive ever had. The portions of fish are huge, easily enough for two. The light crispy batter is to die for Hope this doesnt encourage the owner to cut the portions. At peak periods you can wait a while but its worh it. The queues speak for itself but they do take telephone orders. The accolades on the wall are testimant to these premises. The selection is immense and the staff so friendly. The owner can be seen every morning cleaning windows at 6am. Girls you missed out, he got , married just over a year ago. Even your not from Ballymoney its worth the trip. The sister outlet in Bushmills is equally of the same quality. Give it a try if you havent already been there. You wont be suprised coz everyone knows how good it is.

“Best chip shop in N.I”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

We drive from Magherafelt to Ballymoney every weekend just to get our weekly take away. The chips are excellent, fish is out of this world, burgers are to die for....in fact, everything is excellent!!! Always consistent. Staff are courteous and always speak no matter how busy they are. Often queued out the door the food is so good! Food put out quickly and can honestly say i'v never had a bad meal. Well done Flash in the Pan!!!

“Very highly recommended”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

Well known throughout Northern Ireland, there is a reason it is so busy. Staff always friendly, even at busy times, food I get always great . I always get a generous portion as I observe others also get and strawberry milkshake is excellent. :) Great place to socialise and get the real character and friendliness of the people of Ballymoney. Can't understand how anybody could have anything but the highest award for this place. Must say Ballymoney has this reputation throughout its eating establishments though this one has been established for a very long time, a testimony in itself to its enduring quality :) Ian Stevenson - local councillor

“Best in north coast.”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

Yet again another great supper from Flash in the pan, Ballymoney. Its not very often you walk into a fast food take away and see all the staff with a smile on their face. As usual the cod was cooked to perfection and my daughters cheeseburger was excellent. When was the last time a member of staff from a fast food take away asked you to have a nice day ?
