Reviewed October 1, 2012

Excellent quality of fish and chips - take away or the restaurant is an old fashioned experience They have won many UK awards for their food and we are lucky to live in striking distance of this establishment

“This restaurant cares about what YOU the customer wants and it shows”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

This is by far the best fish restaurant south of London and Kent perhaps even in london itself but I haven't tried them all. . Surpassing the coastal fish shops which you expect to be good cos there produce is fresh so not much to go wrong............ Except that most of these shops now are a combination of a fsh shop come kebab or Chinese. Mcdermotts pride themselves on good quality food and service deservedly so. Yes it may be slightly more expensive than your high st chippy but this is a restaurant and one can dine on fresh fish with a decent glass of wine without paying London prices. If you haven't tried it, you must. Have your business lunch there or just enjoy a pleasant evening with friends or family.

“"Excellent as usual"”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

We have eaten at this restaurant many times, as always the fish was delicious and the chips crisp and soft inside. The service is second to none and the staff are always very welcoming. This restaurant is probably the best Fish & Chips restaurant and takeaway in the area. I have no hesitation in recommending McDermott's to anyone.

has been winning awards for years and deservedly so. Whether you eat in the restaurant or take away the fish is just fantastic. Service with a smile.
