We had beautiful haddock and chips to take away. Haddock was cooked to order, delicate and fresh. Friendly service. Interesting prints on the walls celebrating their 50 years

We ate here on a Friday afternoon. Pleasant service but the food was nothing special. Very expensive for what it was (chips £3.15 a portion!) and the surroundings were very basic and do not warrant the high prices.
I've eaten better fish and chips for far less money elsewhere.

Thursday 31 October 2013. Dropped in for cod, chips & mushy peas in the restaurant. Quite honestly the best fish & chips I've had in years. Freshly cooked in about 5 minutes, piping hot, crispy but not hard. Reasonable price. What more could you ask for ?

We visit Whitstable fairly regularly. As yet we haven't found a favourite not too expensive place to eat.

On this occasion we were a party of four adults. On the recommendation of our son we went to VC Jones. It was a damp windy day and fish and chips seemed a good choice.

We must have passed VC Jones many times as we always enjoy Harbour Street, however the eat in restaurant is tucked away behind the take away shop and not easily visible on passing. We were eating quite late for lunch and it wasn't too busy. The service was excellent and our waitress was very pleasant.

The hot chocolate was lovely and we were all happy with our drinks. Two of our group ate haddock, one scampi and one cod. The chips were ok but I've had better. The mushy peas were enjoyed. The rest of us agreed that our fish was filling but not the best. I found the cod a bit watery!

All in all it was a bit disappointing as I've eaten better fish and chips for less money elsewhere. But our waitress was very helpful.

What could be better..we only had a takeaway from this fish and chip shop, but well worth the wait.
The batter lovely and light and the fish just melted in your mouth, everything cooked to order and plenty of selection of fish. Excellent!!
