Not a lot you can say about fish and chips really but for me this is the best fish and chip shop in Thanet, Fish and chips taste amazing and lovely location on the harbour

I had never heard of Snaith when I first laded in The Isle of Thanet.
It really is a Fish, not as good as real Cod or Haddock, but really cheap at this Eaterie.
Have eaten here scores of times & highly recommend this for really FAST Food, traditional British Fish & Chips..
Also highly rate the same owners outlet in Ramsgate, opposite the Old Casino, down by the harbour..
Do not expect miracles, but I really wish every town & village had a Fish Factory or better fish shop, to replace the vile Kebabs...

Used to go here a lot BUT the last 2 visits were not good at all.
The first the chips seemed to have been hanging around for ages and the batter on the fish was greasy to say the least.
The second was just as bad and the staff seem to consist of a couple of teens who were more interested in last nights conquests than serving.
Shame as Peters was always on my list of 'chippies' to reccomend, not now sadly.

Been to Margate good number of times but happened to read review of this fish & chips place. Sounded good so went & queued around 7.30 pm - only 2 people in front of me and 1 behind. Went to the counter and ordered and said wanted fresh(they say everything is prepared to order). One very young girl(probably school going) and one young boy serving along with someone in the fryer. The girl after 3 minutes took the ones from the display and packed and I said to her that I had wanted fresh one. She asked me to wait & spoke with the guy to the side(whom I couldn't see) who was at the fryer and told me that they were just been put on display and that she had packed it already and that they are fresh - total lie. Very unhappy and gave her some coin change for £1 and rest in two £5 notes). Said they are too busy(only one other person behind me and then no one in the queue!) and she can't count it - the guy from the fryer says that unless they can see how much it is readily then they can't take it(they were 2 pennies about 5 pieces and rest in 20 pence totalling £1. Anyway, came to bench to eat and found so much salt on the chips and cod that I had to remove the batter(which was already off the fish) in order to consume. Bought sausage for my kid who ate it and said was ok. Chips was all bottom pickings(small crispy bits soaked in oil). My other kid refused to eat and my wife binned it. Absolutely revolting and totally over hyped not to mention rude to customers. Best fish & chips in Britain my #@%@ - I can get great stuff in London at my local chippie. I think they might have been good ages ago but definitely quality and attitude is diabolical.
