Whether you have takeaway or eat in their restaurant, the food is excellent. Cod, haddock, sausages, scampi and chips all excellent. Very fast service in the restaurant, I have always waited a maximum of 5 minutes after ordering. Freshly cooked, delicious and tasty. Good value and consistent quality. Very clean in the cooking area, you often see the girls mopping and washing down. A good sign.

I am slightly annoyed by the Malvern reviewer who queried our lack of taste for the exotic. What does he want in a fish and chip shop?! The best around.

My family and I went out to the J.F. on 25 January for evening meals.
We were seated straight away. Staff were taking our order within 5 minutes.
2 of us had cod and chips, 1 pie and chips and southern fried chicken and chips a side of beans and mushy peas, 2 cans of drink and a pot of tea for 2 - £25 the lot.
Got to admit the Jolly is the best F&C shop around here.
We don't always have this type of food but on our travels to nearby Asda, we've never seen the place empty!
I would recommend this restaurant.

I agree with other reviewers that the fish and chips were fresh and well cooked. I had Haddock and chips, a cup of tea and a bread roll, which was good and well priced at around £8. Having spent some time up in West Yorkshire I have been used to some excellent fish and chip restaurants which produced far more tasty fish, possibly due to it being cooked in dripping rather than oil. I can only imagine that the local people do not have much of an appetite for exotic food. Notwithstanding that, it was a nice way to spend half an hour on a rainy day.
