“fishcakes are not fishcakes”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

the fishcakes you order at wi bits are breaded Round fishcakes. the frozen type you get from the supermarket in packs of 10. they then dip them in batter and fry them. they are disgusting. the chips are horrible and they match the name of the shop wi bits mainly bits though. the owner says he's done the fishcakes like this for 18 years! we actually wanted 2 but staff told us he only does 1 as he ends up chucking them at closing. Hello this should shout something to him surely?

“I'm just sorry I couldn't give it less than one.”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

Appalling service, ridiculous price, worse food. The chips must have been cooked at least three times, ironically the fish was not just cool it was cold. I needed to sieve the peas ( to be fair I didn't specify mushy) so the pea soup they gave me was perhaps they're idea of standard fayre. I had to pay £16.40 for this pile of bin filler. They should be ashamed. No pride at all. Embarrassing!

“Worst fish and chips in mirfield.”
Reviewed January 17, 2013 via mobile

Greasy, soggy inedible food and the staff are appalling. They're mostly impolite and I don't think hygiene is very high on the list of priorities. How the place hasn't been closed down I really don't know.

“One to give a miss.”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

Cold limp cardboard like chips that must have been cooked hours before and the fish was ropey too - poor quality and greasy batter. I should have known better as the fryers were sat outside on the windowledge and there was tumbleweed blowing through the place. Clearly they didnt have much to do. Avoid.

“poor”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

I have only been to wi'bits once in my whole time living in mirfield. In my opinion these are the worst fish and chips i have ever had! There was a long wait before getting it then when finally got them they were cold and of poor quality. Would not recommend!
