“A Peterborough Classic”

Jeff Purvey's Seafood

Cuisines: Seafood
Restaurant details
Reviewed June 22, 2013

This place has been a Peterborough classic sense the good ol' days of the GE factory across the road. It's an older place, and the staff have been there for years but one thing they do very well is classic fish and chips. If you're looking for new age seafood this is not your place, if you'd like a great classic done well Jeff Purveys a sure bet.

Exactly what I wanted at Jeff Purvey's Seafood and it was fast with generous portions. They offer a variety of menu items but I love their fish 'n chips the best.

For many years Jeff Purvey's was the place to go for fish and chips and was always extremely busy, especially on Friday evenings.
The last few years the quality has suffered to some extent but still decent fish. They also serve fried chicken.
No longer the destination it once was.

This is a staple restaurant in Peterborough. We had take-out, never dined in. It is a treat and not something you would make a steady diet on. Fish is always fresh fries are amazing..old fashioned french fries. Get tarter sauce......getting hungry thinking about them. Very busy Friday nights. Call ahead for you take-out
