“Great fish and chips, but be prepared to wait!”
Reviewed November 26, 2011

Have been attending this chippie for years. Had piece of plaice last week and I have to say it was the best I've ever eaten! Really fresh, and the batter was very light. The only draw back is that more often than not, you have to wait for what you want to be cooked. They never seem to have enough of anything that is 'ready to go', but if you don't mind waiting, then would highly recommend the food.....delish!

“Nice and value for money”
Reviewed November 14, 2011

Popped in here for a quick dinner. The food was nice and fresh. As per the other other comments there is a dining area though it's far from the best I have ever eaten in at.

“Not nearly what it used to be.”
Reviewed October 14, 2011

The actual fish and chips here are fine. I'm not some f&c expert but the ones I've had have always been freshly cooked and hot with decent batter. But its a pale memory from what this place used to be like and others are catching up. Its welcome there is an eat in area within a town that fares poorly for eat in options but expect very very basic area only albeit clean & tidy and again to be fair good price. Its not a bad place to go but shows what little choice there is that this place is even on T.A. listings for Huntingdon.

“Fish! Fresh and Fast!”
Reviewed December 16, 2010

Hodson's may not offer much atmosphere, but if you want hot, fresh fish at an affordable price, this is your place!

The glass store front is inviting, and cooking is done in the front. Your fish can be cooked to order and you have to option of heavy or lighter batter. This guarantees your food will be fresh and piping hot.

The dining area is basic, but clean and warm. There's a modest charge of 55p for dining in.

Hodson's is among the best when it comes to fish and chips. We've ordered fish and chips at several pubs and in Tesco's cafeteria, and Hodson's wins hands down!
