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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I came to the Codfather because of it's great reviews, I ordered haddock and chips, the fish was cooked to order so it took a while, that I don't mind. When I got home I was very disappointed in the meal. The portion was generous...but the fish was dry and not very tasty as if it had been in the freezer for too long. The chips were very thin cut rectangular in section (presumably so that they cook quicker) so they were also quite dry, I wont be rushing back.More

Jay at the Codfather is so friendly and helpful. He has arranged several meals that have been delivered still steaming out of the heat bags. We are talking 40 - 60 meals so to have them all arrive hot is a task in itself. The...food has always gone down well and I can highly recommended them as the best Fish & Chip shop in Aylesbury. I wouldn't use anyone else.More

This is usually a great fish and chip shop. But our little group of friends ordered 5 fish and 2 large boxes of chips and when we got home there was only one box of chips. And we were really hungry. We had to fill...up with lots of cake. Bit disappointed.More

This is my go to place for fish & chips and has been for years. The fish is always battered perfectly and cooked to perfection and this is still the case if it is a mini fish or a large. The in house made fish...cakes are delicious and well worth trying. The staff are polite and friendly, the premises is always clean and tidy. There is plenty of free parking and it's conveniently next to a Tesco Express should you need anything else.More

Just called in here tonight on the way home from work. Well once home to my surprise was a tiny cod mainly covered in batter accompanied by the smallest portion of chips - very disappointing. Not recommended at all! #codfibber #£11 rip off!!!!

I Pre Ordered back in March 20+ portions for a surprise birthday party. Paid the deposit and would confirm the order the day before the party in May. The day before the party I popped in to confirm the order which was now 31 varying...portions of fish and chips, pie And chips and sausage and chips. They tallied up the balance to be paid on delivery and confirmed all the delivery details. Upon delivery, which was bang on time, all food was piping hot, every box was labelled, and everything was correct, which for an order that size I think was pretty impressive. Balance was paid with a receipt provided. Everyone finished their dinner, even the 9 year old ! Everyone commented on how fresh and hot the food was and obviously delicious by the empty boxes. The stress of organising a surprise party was immense but the one thing I didn't have to worry about was the food! Codfather, you were efficient, friendly and nothing was too much trouble. I cannot fault the food or the service and will continue to use you as we have done over the years. You certainly have 30 new customers from our party guests ! A* !More

I only just discovered that the Codfather sell milkshakes... the biscoff milkshake is literally the best I've ever had. It's the perfect consistency and unbelievably tasty. I also recommend the halloumi.
