This used to be one of my favourite places for Fish & Chips, however in my view it has gone down hill in Value and taste. you pay extra for a large piece of Fish which I would say at most is medium,and medium is small. lately I found bones in the fish which spoils the enjoyment, it never used...

Great takeaway fish and chips always freshly cooked. Always use when we are in Aldeburgh very friendly staff. Long queues usually in summer, but winter still busy at times. They have a restaurant upstairs which is great if you want to sit down for meal worth a visit.

Queued for a very long time to be served which wasn't their fault. Very let down by the medium cod. Was very small and ALL batter. Would say smaller than a small cod in most chip shops. Hardly any fish at all and what there was had bones in.

Please get another supplier. Cod more bones than flesh. Being a local I am not fooled like the tourists into thinking the fish is fresh and caught locally......but I do expect a Fillet to actually be filleted.

We had expected much as this was a sister place of the fish and chip shop where you have to queue - but unfortunately that was closed for the night. We were a little disappointed when we got our meals home, the cod was extremely boney, and my haddock very dry and quite tastless. Chips could have been cooked a... More

Nice refurbishments though not Shure how appropriate the new floor covering is .the word "Negroland " printed on it does stand out still in a post brexit and trump world this kind of thing may make a comeback. FOOD EXCELENT
