“Best fish and chips ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2013

This is by far the best chip shop ever! Always great food and service. Always busy but worth waiting for. The portions are huge and Lots of variety! It's a shame they don't have a seating area aswel!

“Big Fish is the BEST”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

We are well supplied with first rate chippy's in the Swadlincote area but Big Fish is the best of the lot. Andy's in Church Gresley held the title of the Best in the Midlands and 2nd in the country but the quality has slipped since the owners have handed over to a younger generation. I live practically next door to Andys, but trog off to the Big Fish for mine chip supper. Exceptional quality and great value for money
