“Best fish and chips in Basingstoke”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

Best fish and chips in the town, never dined in but many had a few take aways. The fish is always fresh and excellent quality. A little pricey but well worth the money.

“Great fish and chips”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

If you eat in at the Oliver's restaurant, you will not be disappointed. The portions are very large and always freshly cooked to order. There are often specials on the board and offers for senior citizens. I find the staff polite, friendly and efficient.

“Dry chips, soggy batter and mashy fish.”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

There was no breaded fish available, so after opting for a pie amd waiting a few minutes I was then told there was only one type of pie available. So ended up ordering the battered cod. When I got home the fish was very mashy and the batter was the same. The chips were very very dry as if they had been left under the lights for a very long time. Extremely disappointing!

“Excellent food”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

We first visited the restaurant about a couple of months ago and have since been regular visitors. This isn't a "gastronomic" experience, and there is no pretence, but if you're in the market for delicious fish and chips you can't go wrong. Not my thing but they also grill most of their fish selections on request, and will also change your chips for mash, which my wife prefers. Pleasant surroundings and good service. Would highly recommend.

Used to love coming here but it has gone downhill so much. Quite a few people I know have said this as well
