“Reliable and decent value.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2013

Jacks is a popular traditional takeaway fish and chip shop.
It is probably the best in the Spalding area (although that's not huge praise!).
Fish is a little greasy, but not overly so. Chips are good - not too chunky and soft, but not soggy. Prices are reasonable.
Parking can be a little tricky at times, but the fast service prevents this from being too much of a problem.

“large fish”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

Always a good piece of fish, we have a large one and cut it in half, still plenty to eat. Chips are fresh as the place seems always busy when we order so now phone ahead which saves a wait when ordering.

“Good food, make sure you are hungry.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2013 via mobile

I went to this fish and chip shop while staying at the Travelodge nearby. Food was tasty and cooked fresh. There was a short wait while the fish was cooked, but that's far better than having one that has been sat there a while. Make sure you are hungry though as the fish was huge.
