This is a fish and chip shop with a small cafe attached.
Haddock and chips, mushy peas, bread and butter and a pot of tea freshly cooked for

“Best EVER fish and chips”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2012

We visited here for take away fish and chips and as ever we werent disappointed.The fish is cooked to order so a wait of five or so minutes is required but well worth it.A large thick piece of fish cooked to perfection in fantastic batter with first class chips at a very reasonable price was just what we were looking for for a quick and easy treat.Excellent staff/service.

“Best Chip Shop in Scotland”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2012

We've recently moved to Peebles and had tried the other chip shop in town which was pretty poor...discovered Jim Jacks whilst walking round town (not on the main street but down a side street) and ordered a quick takeaway meal. It was just fantastic!! Everything cooked fresh so no curled up dried out fish just perfectly cooked and delicious suppers. Very reasonable price and decent portion size make this a winner...queues are a giveaway to how fab this place is...just great!!

“Delicious and cooked to order.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2011

Always good fish and chips, closes at 8pm though. Nothing frozen, but cooked to order while you wait. Thick chunky fish, delicious chips served in a box. The best place in Peebles where local families go. You can also sit in, small set tables. Highly recommend.
