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.

Excellent quality traditional fish and chips. It’s worth knowing that Summer evenings are ideal for eating food from Towngate Fisheries at the adjacent New Inn

This used to be an excellent chippy. I've used this chippy for over 10 years, but recently the standard of the food and portion size has fallen. The recent visits the fish was tiny, including the special (large fish), which was not too dissimilar to...a regular fish and the chips were just a light sprinkle. After several poor experiences I've use another local chippy now, who offer better quality, portion size and value.More

I happened across Towngate Fisheries by accident while visiting Idle on business. What a little gem. I haven’t had better fish and chips and look forward to visiting Idle and this chippy once again.

Went in at lunchtime and got the sausage meal deal. The sausage was perfectly battered and tasted nice. The chips were pale and underdone, very chewy. Curry sauce was disgusting and tasted nothing like it does at other fish shops - very dark colour.

Towngate fish and chips are absolutely the best I have had anywhere and I have visited a lot of fish and chip shops. They are freshly cooked to perfection and delicious. We have bought from them for years and would thoroughly recommend them.

I tried the fish & chips here for the first time this week as a friend recommended them telling me they were the best ever - boy were they right! The fish was white and chunky, the batter crisp and crunchy and the chips although...looking pale in colour tasted just how I like them (my friend says it’s because they fry the traditional way in beef dripping). Although they cost more than sone other places they were well worth it and I’ll definitely be backMore

I had family come to visit over the holidays and they insisted we got fish & chips from here as there’s nothing like it where they live. The food was delicious as always and good value for money. I have the lite bite as it’s...just enough for me and the family shared 2 of their “meal for two” offers. We have a loyalty card even though I no longer get to go as often as I used to which saves us money tooMore

Friendly and speedy service on a recent visit, ample parking, and great food. Haddock & Chips and Curry Sauce on this visit were delicious. Great value, in my view. Consistently good over multiple visits and always clean. I couldn't ask for anymore.
