Have given this place a go a few times now. Fish and chips has been average and doesn't warrant the cost. Much better options if you want a proper chippy not one that caters to the beard and artisan movement. Staff are friendly but food...More

Chips not bad, but broken crockery, out of stock menus - no children’s desserts , despite been on menus, is not a great service for charges made. Also very little seating available. Sorry but standards slipping.

This would not be my first choice primarily because I’m vegetarian however, I was pleasantly surprised to see vegetarian options on the menu. Battered hallumi in a brioche bun with endless chips seemed a very reasonable choice. It was tasty and served quickly and speedily....More

Fish & Chips is one of life's great pleasures. The smell of salt and vinegar on hot freshly cooked battered fish and chips is hard to beat and this national dish is well and truly part of British culture. The Fisherman's Kitchen was born from our love of Fish & Chips. Without meddling with this great British classic we set out to cook the best battered fish and chips around with crisp batter and perfectly cooked freshly cut chips. We also felt fish and chips didn't just have to be battered or be in the form of cod and haddock. We offer numerous grilled fish and seafood options alongside homemade salads, dips, a selection of side options and weekly specials all paired with great beers and wines. Sit in, takeaway or delivery from the comfort of your own home, the choice is yours. We hope to see you soon at The Fisherman's Kitchen soon.
