“Great friendly 'chippy'”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2014

This family owned 'chippy' is the best around for miles. The service is very attentive with happy staff and the quality of the fish and chips is second to none. Lovely views over the harbour and docks too.

“Accomodating to large family birthday gathering.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2014

We were lucky that a recent double family birthday was out of season. We were a large party and some of our party insisted on re-arranging the tables, this was accepted by the amiable staff.

The food was fresh, well cooked and everybody was happy with the food.

They were even happy enough for everyone to pay separately through their fancy till.

They were very accommodating and the quality of the food was easily as good as the more well known fish and chip restaurant closer to the Maritime Museum.

Thank you for an excellent review! Very happy to move tables when possible. Gratitude for the comments on the food and service and mentioning our fancy till, doesn't get enough credit in my opinion :)

All the best!

“Poor”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2014 via mobile

We ordered Cod and chips and Plaice and chips. The Cod was so thin that we asked the waitress if it was definitely Cod she called over another waitress and she said that it was definitely Cod. It was the worst Fish and Chips we have ever had. We will not be going again. The waitress was lovely and took 10 % off but it was still not worth the money.

Hello! The issue with your meal has been investigated, we've spoken to the staff and they were fortunate enough to get a reaction from the other customers present at the same time you were.

The investigation however bore the fruit that as far as the size and shape of the meal, they were in line with what we strive to serve and what every other customer received. All other feedback was positive, and we've always had a firm mission statement that every customer leaves with a smile on their face.

Mission failed in this case - but thank you for mentioning our lovely waitress.

All the best in future chip shop adventures!

-Pete.
