Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Best fish and chips I’ve had in a long time. I had the Lite Bite meal (small fish, small chips, side of mushy peas) which was actually plenty for me at tea-time. The chips were hot, crispy, and delicious - not in the slightest bit...greasy - and the fish was delectable with flavoursome flesh and crispy batter. The peas were great, too! Recommend highly.More

I have read and heard about this chippy but it was very very disappointing. Much prefer scale hall plaice or Atkinson's for fresh fried chips and made to me order fish and cheaper

Terrible the chips weren’t cooked won’t be going again . This is the second time that the chips were hard and greasy and we had to throw them in the bin a waste of money .

Ordered The Lite Bite Meal £7.50. Supposedly small fish and chips and a choice of side I chose gravy. Haven eaten here on past holidays I was expecting more. But this place seriously gone down hill, I presume different owners. The small fish was watery...and more batter and scraps than fish. If those chips where put through a chipper then it must cut perfectly as they was all the same width and length definitely tasted and looked like frozen oven chips!! The gravy was far too big and just got wasted, they should offer larger and smaller tub sizes. Also when the lad handed me my meal the box wasn't shut properly because of the gravy tub so I asked for a bag as , the food would have gone cold far too quickly without, I got looked at like I had asked for 100 bags!! It wasn't handed properly to me and I had to reach over to get it. Definitely wouldn't recommend to anyone.More

We live in Bolton le Sands and used to love this chippy but it has seriously gone downhill recently. Our fish coujons were well overcooked, consisting of thick batter with very little fish. The lightly battered fish was thick crunchy batter, not what was ordered....The large chips were anaemic and a tiny portion. The prices have risen but the quality of the food leaves a lot to be desired. Lots of young staff and not enough quality control especially at busy times. We will be giving this chip shop a miss from now on.More

No, it is walk in also, however pre-orders online will always take precedence over walk-ins.
