My mate Jim, he's the bluenoser i've told you about in some of my other reviews, (a bluenoser means he's from nova scotia for those not up to speed), well, he's gone off clam chowder but he really likes battered fish. The thing is, he can never find good fish and chips in engerland despite it being our national dish.... More

Visited this establishment for the first time in ages last might and wish I hadn't bothered. Whilst the chips were ok ( which, let's be honest, is not difficult) the cod consisted of a tiny slither of fish masked by too much batter. How on earth they have the cheek to charge in excess of £5 for this miserable offering... More

I used to love this place, but sadly it's gone downhill, I've given it several chances but no matter what day i visit it's still the same, nothing seems fresh, time to look for a new takeaway.

Was ok, nice meaty fish which was cooked as I waited - chips were a tad oily for my liking. Will probably go in again to re try at some point.

We order from here regularly as they will take telephone orders for multiple orders. The food is always ready when promised and is hot and delicious.

The shire fryer is my favourite fish and chip shop in Shrewsbury. I pass several others to go there! It's always busy so be prepared to queue out of the door even on a cold winters evening. The quality of the freshly cooked food is simply the best and worth a cold wait. The takeout choices are also quite wide... More

This is our favourite place to by fish & chips and will power goes out of the window if we are in and around Shrewsbury and going home around a meal time. Everything is freshly cooked & tasty.

Sadly this once terrific chippy has gone downhill since Steve left I gave it several 'chances' but sadly it fails to deliver, my latest visit doner meat and chips easy enough you would think however the meat was that dry it was inedible, will not return time to find a new chippy.
