They have great fish and chips. Nothing fancy, just good fish and chips. A good selection of British beers and a great "english" atmosphere :)

I have had fish and chips all over the US, as well as the UK, Belgium, the Netherlands, and France. On average, the fish and chips in Vancouver, British Columbia, are better than anywhere else I've been to.

And the fish and chips served at the Wigan Pier in Squamish are the best I've had anywhere. Squamish is a little town situated just about halfway between Vancouver and Whistler. If heading in either direction, consider stopping here.

Ask for the halibut (not the cod), and for smaller pieces (not one big slab, which won't fry up right). You'll get a lightly-battered, crispy-on-the-outside, tender-on-the-inside fish with home-cut fries, at an astonishingly modest price (about $15 for the large platter). Personally, I prefer both with mayonnaise rather than ketchup or vinegar.

The Wigan Pier isn't very elegantly furnished ("mementos of England" decor, not offensive but not impressive), but the staff are friendly, and the overall food experience is tops.

If you have a craving for fish and chips then this is your place. I have tried fish and chips in England and they are not any better than at this place.

I think they have the best fish and chips in the corridor, including Horseshoe Bay! The staff are very friendly! They do have a great menu, with the English meat pies, etc. You can even buy them frozen for home!

One of Squamish`s nice places to enjoy a quiet meal with that special someone.. Friendly owner and staff and tasty English fare. Fish was flaky, tasted fresh, and batter was definitely done right. Chips were good, too. Will be back here soon!
