“Lovely chips”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2014 via mobile

Always go to Tuckers over other chip shops in Cheddar. Great chunky chips, huge portions and not too expensive. Good range of dishes including veggie burger which has actual vegetables in, not just some mushed up beans. Yum!

“Good value, fresh fish and chips”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2014

Stopped for fish and chips here after a day wandering Cheddar. Based on our day, Cheddar seems to go to sleep after 5pm when most of the tourists have moved on - whether that be the pensioners on their bus tours or the kids running around on their school trips. Fairly enough, most of the shops close so it was good to have a quick drink in a local pub before going for some fish and chips.

Restaurant was quiet on our visit but it was not long after opening and there were a few takeaways served whilst we were there. Cost about £8 for fish, chips, mushy peas and a drink.

And it was well worth hanging around the village for the meal too. This clean and tidy restaurant/takeaway, with its Italian themed decor (I suspect that, like the best fish and chip shops in my hometown, this is an Italian family's restaurant) served up well cooked, fresh and tasty skinless cod fillet, without excessive greasiness and plentiful chips.

Not much more to say than that really, a decent plate of fish and chips in Cheddar.

“Really nice fish and chip place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2014

Tuckers is a take out and an eat in and is quite close to the carpark. I found the chips at tuckers to be a nice change from other places I have been as they were not really overly greasy. They also do a good selection of foods other than fish for example burgers, chicken and jacket potatoes plus more. They also have specials on the menu for example seafood platter which has something a bit different like battered goujons and scallops. Overall a nice fish and chip shop and I would visit again.

“Great Value & Realy Good.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2014

As it was a lovely day the wife and I decided to drive into Cheddar only a 30 minute drive from our home, and have lunch at Tuckers Fish & Chips, Its something we have done many times before. Today instead of the normal Fish & Chips we decided to have the combo for 2 --- wow what a massive plateful, 2 big pieces of fish- a pile of whitebait - Scampi -- Fish strips in batter -- Salad and a plate of Chips at the great price of just under £16.0.for 2 and we took our own wine as there is no corkage charge, They also do other meals at great prices and they also have a take away. Will keep going back for the lovely scenic drive and great Fish & Chips.

“Takeaway and sit down cafe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2014

stopped off with a small party of people, some veggies and there was plenty of choice for them too. Large portions made fairly quickly, friendly waitresses and the seating area is pleasant enough. Easy to be critical that its not posh, or not particularly smart or very cheap.....but actually its fantastic to find a great fish and chip shop that is just that!
