“Best chippy in derbyshire!”

Darley Dale Fish Bar
Ranked #81 of 136 Restaurants in Matlock
Restaurant details
Reviewed May 10, 2014 via mobile

If your heading out and about in derbyshire make sure you call in at this chippy.

This is probably the best chippy in derbyshire. Its in a great location on the a6 but parking to eat some of the finest chips around is hard to find. When people go out the door just to grab a taste of the chips you must be doing something right. If like myself live locally you will have tasted bakewell, matlock and matlock bath's chippys then you will know at busy times and weekends chippys rush and send you half cooked or smaller portions not at darley they are fantastic every time and huge portions.

The staff are friendly and fast so even when busy your not hanging around long. Darley dale has a great menu so when you next going to visit local attractions think about stopping by darley and taste real fish and chips!!

My mum and I had taken to the road on the Bank Holiday exploring the Peak District, travelling up hill and down dale but failing to stop in Buxton or Bakewell. We knew there was a reliably good chip shop in Belper - and any number of chip shops in Matlock - but we weren't sure we could hold out that long. So we stopped in Darley Dale and thought we were taking a bit of a chance but we couldn't have been any more delighted.

The service was quick and efficient, polite and pleasant. Our fish and chips were fresh, hot, crispy and tasty. The fish batter was a little oily but otherwise it was perfectly cooked. Needless to say they didn't last long. The portions were modest (I think they could have been more generous) but it tasted great, so we were satisfied. And we can be very fussy. I think we've found another gem to add to our Derbyshire chip shop trail.

Went to order a chinese from next door but they were closed for New Year.Had to go home with something,so ordered from here.MISTAKE.!!
Ordered scampi and chips for husband.He said they were O.K but its hard to mess up frozen scampi.
I had the misfortune of ordering a double cheese burger.( look lovely on the photos in the shop)
Lovely girl serving produced them from the freezer and slapped them on the grill.Nothing sizzled and she apologized saying "the grill is very slow".Didnt look very appertising as it was cooking.
Got it home and took a bite. Spat it straight out.!!!!
Still cold and raw in the middle and tasted off.Soggy salad. Just inedible.Straight in the bin.
Wont be going back .Would rather starve.!!!!

waited a long time and was rewarded with burnt (not chargrilled) chicken meat which looked like it had been cooked in a bonfire with a thick crust of burnt ash on each piece of chicken. disgusting food.
