“Good honest fish and chips”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2013

Regularly use this fish and chip shop, great fish and chips and always immaculately clean. Father in law from out of town always wants a fish supper from here when he visits. I can't understand the negative comments about the staff who always appear friendly.

“So unprofessional and rude !!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2013

I used this fish shop whilst visiting in the Mowden area and will NOT be stepping foot in there again !! The women serving are so God damn rude. I was tutted at by the younger one, the older one was 'playing' with a young child running around near the fryers which I found a health and safety hazard. The boy must have been 3 or 4 years old and was swearing at people in the shop and the women were giggling!! I didn't get a please or thank you when I placed my order and although the chips were average, the fish was not nice at all. A waste of money!!! Don't bother with this fish shop, it's probably the worst one in Darlington

“Good basic chippy”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013 via mobile

It serves good Fish and Chips and associated batter based products. Service is cheerful enough and prices keen.

“Very poor”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2013 via mobile

Everytime iv been in the staff have been very rude and miserable, it's like they are doing you a favour. Don't go at 7pm and expect food it's like they can't wait to get home. The last time I had fish it was soggy. There are plenty more fish&chips shops in Darlington that are better and glad of your custom.

“Very poor service.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2013

I have used this chip shop on several occasions before and its always been alright, hot and a fair price.

I called in this lunchtime as the lights were on and door open. It was clear that they had cleaned and were about to close but had some chips, sausages and other things sat in the hot cupboard. I waited 3 minutes as no one was around, I shouted hello a couple of times with no reply and eventually a lady came through and stared at me, she then said they were closed. I asked if I could buy the sausage and chips that were sat there waiting and was given the response that "I am in m clothes now" (not in her work wear) and then was tutted at.

I will not be using this shop again, they clearly did not want my money for the food that was going to waste.
