A day off work saw us heading to Weymouth as usual. Our first port of call is always this fish and chip shop. It's clean, bright and airy. The staff are friendly and efficient. Nothing is too much trouble for them. They provide and understand gluten free requirements which takes the worry out of eating out. The food is wonderful, tasty, fresh and beautifully presented. Be in no doubt this is the place to go for your fish and chips. We have visited many times and will continue to do so.
I'm not sure that Mr 1 star review was in the same fish and chip shop!
Thank you Old Harbour and see you very soon!

Thank Lynjh

Visited today as we do every time we go to weymouth as one of the very few that do GLUTEN FREE. they also use a different fryer so no cross contamination The fish and chips are easily the best around. Real chips perfectly cooked flakey fish and piping hot. Service and staff are excellent. Highly recommended and as a coeliac a must! If not coeliac I have on good authority still excellent food.

Yet another Weymouth eatery with too pompous and high an opinion of itself. This is overrated junk from reviewers who led my family down the wrong track once more. We find better places by not listening to this on here but looking around for ourselves.

The fish and chips were nothing special at all. Not even what any of us would call "good". We have a better chippy 5 mins away from where we live.

The service was poor and slow. We didn't feel like valued customers. In fact, it felt like we were a chore to the girl serving us, just having to take our order.

The atmosphere was not right either. We couldn't wait to get out of there as quickly as possible.

The chips had a certain texture to them to suggest they are pre frozen...can't guarantee that, but it gave that impression.

The fish was wishy washy.

The price was extortionate! I overheard an elderly couple arguing with them about the OAP meal prices. It really wound me up what the staff woman said in defence of the price, "But we're the best. You would get a cheaper piece of fish in Yates's, but that's out of a box. Ours is not."

I just wanted to shout at her how wrong her argument was. Can you see the flaw yet? Why should a chippy be comparing itself to a Yates's? It should compare to only another fish and chips restaurant. In that case, you'll be aware that most chip shops give you "real" fish not out of a box.

I felt so begrudging having to pay the bill at the end...Horrible place. Avoid. You've been warned.

Great service by a very friendly waitress and the lovely owner. I had scampi and wonderful chips...
a good serving of both. Beautifully cooked. I even had a glass of very nice white wine. Worth a trip to the restaurant for friendly service and good food.
