Up Visiting family and wanted some fish and chips, got told there is only one place to go. Got in there and its very small but very quaint with lots of character. Put my order in and its only cooked once you order so no fish waiting to be bought. So it can take a little longer but its fresh. Had mushy peas as well which were very well seasoned. Chips were cracking. Highly recommend.

This is not a restaurant.......it's a fish and chip shop. You can't sit, you stand waiting for your order, given you are given a number for your order. Food is not always consistant in quality. Chips are wedges. Fish, mostly ok.
""It's a chip shop""..... Nothing more.
No1..don't think so.

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

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.

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.
