“Fish and chips done properly....”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

Traditional fish and chip shop.
Recommend a visit if in the Bournemouth area.
Expect to wait for a table if you arrive at peak meal times. Well worth the wait though.
Service very friendly and attentive even when they were very busy.
Very tasty and free refill of chips is you can find room?

“top notch fish and chips”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

Dined in restaurant and had to wait a little while for a table as it was extremely busy but the fish and chips was well worth the wait. Good service and didn't have to wait too long for the food to arrive.

“A traditional, good value fish and chip restaurant”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

Chez Fred was recommended to us by strangers at Sandbanks and we managed to find it quite easily. We waited for a few minutes and were then shown to our table by friendly staff. The menu is not extensive but there was a variety of fish on offer. The cod was excellent,- the batter not greasy and although we were given loads of chips you can have more chips free. The still and sparkling water is also free as are the coffee and tea refills. Although the fish is cooked to order it didn't take long to come. The waitresses are attentive and helpful. We didn't have room for puddings but they looked good. This is a popular, reasonably priced restaurant and take-away that is trying hard.

“Delicious, fab friendly service.”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

We had the lunchtime special and it was lovely, not greasy with good quantities of chips and curry sauce. Coffee was good. Service from start to finish was superb. Friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Will be back!

“Great Food”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

Chez Fred served the best fish & chips I've had for a long time. The service was excellent which matched the food.. We went to the restaurant rather than take away and it was well worth it
