“Fish and Chips at It's Best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

We had read how good the fish and chipe were, but not tried until recently. Have to say that normally when you purchase fish and chips by the time you've god home the chips have gone soggy and the fish no longer crispy. Not this time though, would definatly recomment !

“Best in West (Cheshire)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2012

We travel from Knutsford to this fish and chip shop in Northwich because it is the best in the area. Consistently high quality, generous portions, golden batter, fresh fish and fluffy chips.This chippie was originally recommended to me by one of my pupils who has coeliac disease and the Codfather has adapted the menu to include gluten free dishes. That says a great deal about how much they value their customers. We keep going back because we have never been disappointed by their fish and chips. My eldest highly recommends the spam fritters.

“Great Fish and Chips!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2012

Not open as often (or as long) as I would like but this place has to be the best Fish and Chip take-away in Cheshire!

If you want Fish that is fresh, well prepared and tastes like your at the seaside then this is definitely the place to go!

“Best in northwich”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2012 via mobile

This is the best chippy in northwich with the lunch specials being a real good deal. I love the chips up in the yorkshire area and these are nearly there. Only beef dripping would better these chips! Keep up the quality and value

“The Best in the North West”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2012 via mobile

Matt and his team do a great job. The fish is fresh, the batter is light and tasty and the chips are always perfectly cooked with fluffy centres. They even have s gluten-free range. So many Fish & Chip shops try to diversify too much and lose sight of the central point of their business. Not here though. Always hot fresh and tasty. I'm a fan.
