“Huge portions”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

Had some lovely fish and chips, one of us had cod the other had haddock, both were very fresh, I also had mushy peas and it made a nice change for there to be more peas than sloppy green liquid which seems to be how most fish and chip shops serve them, the bread roll was also nice and fresh. If I were to have a criticism it would be that the batter was a little hard.

“Can't beat this for fish and chips”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

Really worth travelling for! Fresh fish, crisp non-greasy chips - no gimmicks. The surroundings are pleasant and clean and cosy. Great friendly service. Literally the best I've ever tasted.

“wot! no gravy or curry sauce!”
Reviewed December 8, 2012

As Peter Kay would say..'has thou n'owt moist?'..dryish mushy peas the only option from the rather sniffy abrupt lady behind the friers...went to the pub near the front by the moot hall instead...jolly nice..

“Children under 3 not welcome here!”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

We arrived at The Upper Deck at lunchtime with our 18 month old son. It was the only restaurant open in Aldeburgh at the time. We were greeted at the top of the stairs by a rather abrupt lady who told us we were not welcome there with a child under 3 as they have no highchairs or changing facilities and health & safety regulations meant they could not serve us. We said we wouldn't require either but were told we had to go. We felt the way we were told was not at all pleasant and were left wondering was it really because of health & safety or they just didn't want children there. One to avoid if you have young children!

“Disappointing”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

We ate here as it was recommended to us by several people. We ate upstairs in the restaurant area which was quiet when we arrived (6.30ish) but soon filled up. The chips were cold and undercooked and the fish was bland and two out of three fish had several bones in. My daughter enjoyed her sausage but they're not really what fish and chips shops are all about, are they?
