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.

Reviewed 24 May 2023 via mobile

Ordered two large haddock and chips and one small pot of curry sauce at lunchtime. Haddock wasn’t battered very well and most of the chips buried under the fish were small . We have had large haddock from Bishopston previously and the size of the...large haddock , in our opinion has shrunk considerably. We haven’t had a takeaway from Bishopston fish for about a year and sadly on this occasion it was very disappointing. We have always had well prepared fish and chips from Bishopston before . Sadly we would be hard pressed to return . Paid £12 for each large haddock and with two chips and a small Pot of curry sauce , approx £32 ish . If the fish was well battered and the chips were decent then we might have returned .More

The fish bar boasts countless awards on its walls and website so you already know that the bar is going to be high. Thankfully, they can live up to this reputation and are able to repeatedly fry to perfection. Crisp, not oily bringing out the...flavour. Portion sizes are really good too so don't get too carried away with the side options!More

Overall this establishment has good reviews, but if you check the majority of the poor reviews are most recent. My first visit last month, 2 x cod n chip, consisted of soggy batter, hard chips , some very watery curry sauce, but pleasant tasting fish....We had ordered at around 5:15, but we both thought these were lunchtimes unsold food reheated. Willing to give them the benefit of the doubt, tried again same order minus the curry sauce and ordered after 6pm. Same result awful chips and soggy batter. Outcome: That’s the second and least visitMore

Usually excellent, but chips tonight were flabby and not crisp; cod OK but too much batter; and no slice of lemon as used to be usual. Has it changed hands? Just not up to the high standard I'd come to expect as a regular, local...customer.More

For some reason this chip shop has a stellar reputation. I though I’d give it a try last Thursday lunchtime with a standard potion of cod and chips. The cod was passable - a bit small and too much batter but the chips were awful....They were white and flabby and barely cooked. I had to put them in a frying pan to brown, and even then they weren’t great. Perhaps they think they can get away with a poor product at lunchtime. They cannot, but in any case I won’t be giving them my custom any time soon.More

This place has a wonderful reputation, so being new to the area we thought we'd give it a try. I am sure that usually it is as good as the glowing reviews, but the food was just OK - the owner said that he had...been using new potatoes (i.e. a different type) and the chips were poor - flabby and seemingly undercooked. We went in the midsts of COVID-19 precautions and hence a long queue was waiting, so maybe the chips were a bit rushed. the fish was OK There are therefore mitigating circumstances, but if one is being honest, this was not a brilliant fish and chip meal. Might give somewhere else a try next timeMore

Used this for the first time during Covid 19 restrictions, as it was one of the few places where you did not have to order first (either on line or over the phone and that may be possible) It was a Saturday night, and all...pubs and restaurants were close and not many others open either doing phone orders or deliverys only There was a wait, but it is all freshly cooked and the smaller size is of a generous size - order inside and wait outside as is a minimum of two people in at a time Keep up the good work great tasty fish & chips and I will be backMore

This is the best chippy in Bristol, in our oppinion. All the food is freshly cooked and of high quality. Staff friendly and helpful. It can get busy , particularly on Friday nights. But don't let that put you off1

This chippy is spot on. Its popular so you may have to wait at busy times.... they always seem to cook freshly for you so its worth the wait. The batter is really light and tasty and the fish excellent fresh quality There isn't a...great variety on the menu but its a traditional chippy and what they do ... they do really wellMore

Usually VERY good. When busy not so good. Not sure what's changed, but both fish and chips looked anemic and tastes different. Not as tasty. Maybe they have swapped oils or changed suppliers. Real shame.

I ordered chips and beans a few months ago and i got a portion smothered in beans (which i love) but this time round i was only given a tiny amount of beans and they didn't even come on top of the chips.

When it's busy in the evenings the fish and chips are fresh and hot and very nice so was suprised at lunch time recently, the chips weren't fresh, many were bad and small crisp pieces. Inedible and thrown away .
