“Great fish!”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

The fish you get is amazing! The staff are always up for a chat whilst you wait. The chips on the other hand arent the best but that is why I only gave it 4/5

“Fish to Dine for!”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

After a busy sunday neither of us felt like cooking, so we decided to try the Wee Kelpie to see if it matched it's local and National reputation. It was superb, freshly cooked fish and chips for each customer, a slice of lemon and home made mushy peas and sauces set this Chippie apart from it's competition. Well done guys; thanks for a super sunday supper.

“Soggy fish matched the weather!”
Reviewed March 21, 2014

What a disappointment!

A bleak and wet miserable Wednesday night............a nice fish supper from the Wee Kelpie.
The chips were the usual standard, however both fish were soggy and not particularly appetising.
Had the weather not been so dreadful I would have returned - even had some tummy rumblings afterwards for the remainder of the evening.

Hope this was a one off and we can enjoy the high standards we have come to expect and experience.

“Super Chippie”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

This is a really good chippie. The quality of the fish, the batter and the hand made chips is absolutely top notch. No greasy batter or flaccid slimy chips. Book ahead so that you don't have to wait. Everything cooked to order. Good value best quality. We have tried the haddock, the scampi and the chicken. All great. Well worth a visit

“The Wee Kelpie”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

Definitely the best fish and chips in the area - the chips are really crispy, and the fish batter perfect.
