“Good Fish and Chips”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2013

Great fish and chip restaurant. Typical menu, fish, chips, chicken, burgers - but that what you expect and that's what you get. Reasonable price for the area - right next to the RSC Theatre and the fish was fresh and lovely.

Ideal for a quick basic meal.

“Don't waste your time or money!!!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2013 via mobile

Felt totally ripped off after a visit to this fish and chip restaurant. We ate in and the prices are expensive. They charged us £2 for a pint of post mix, however the drinks they served us weren't pints. I explained to the young man serving that the glasses were not pint glasses and he just argued with me and said that they were!!! Trading standards and the weights and measures people need to visit this place. Our food was cooked freshly to order but wasn't very good quality. It is very expensive and they make money wherever they can - they charge for all sauces - even in the restaurant! The restaurant is dated and our table was dirty. Don't bother going! For good value for money eat early and take advantage of pre theatre menus in some of the lovely restaurants - lots of them serve fish and chips too.

Not a lot to say really, if you like fish and chips and then you will probably like it. Its not fancy but its decent food and well priced.

“Traditional British Fish & Chips”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013

This chipper is on the corner of a busy shopping street with a view of the park and the river. You order or get your food direct from the counter either to eat in or take-away. Everything is freshly cooked - the batter for the fish is luckily not as thick but nicely crisp and hot, but still a little soggy. The chips are batch fried and put in the heating compartment as are the sausages which then tend to be luke warm by the time you get to eat them. The salads are fresh and you get plenty on the plate so it is not just a side dish!! Overall it is actually good value but disappointed that you have to pay for whatever sauce you want to add. Staff behind the counter and cash desk could be a little more friendly like the staff on the floor who were always walking about tidying and cleaning immediately any table that becomes vacant and who were always smiling giving the impression that they at least were happy working there.

“Basic Fish and Chips”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2013

Typical English Fish and Chips. You can get a mini order (half the fish) which I would recommend since I couldn't eat the larger size. Everything is extra. 5p for every sauce. Near the river and we noticed a lot of locals doing take away and sitting at the park near the river.
