“Very nice fish and chips - but please change the oil”
Reviewed February 26, 2013 via mobile

We had a very nice takeaway - very fresh fish and proper chips but the oil was dark brown and left a very slightly bitter taste on the batter - easily disguised with lashings of vinegar though.

“Best in the West”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

We have fish and chips from here almost every week and they are the best quality and value you can find. Always a warm welcome, the menu has a wide variety of items, not just fish and chips. They also do great pies and burgers. Lil also opens for breakfast most mornings and does sandwiches and pasties for lunches in addition to the usual menu. There is a great big free car park across the road and some seating inside as well as tables outside when the weather permits. Well worth a visit.

“best chippy in the world”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

I have fish and chips from lils chippy most weeks, the fish is always fresh and tasty, the batter lovely and crispy. they are the best fish and chips i ever tasted, when they close for holidays i don't bother going anywhere else as i know other take-aways will not match up to lils.
As well as the great food, lil and terry are always very friendly, there are tables and chairs outside in the summer.
I would definitely recommend lils chippy
