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.

Lovely time capsule as other reviews have said. Fish batter lovely and good fish, very decent mushy peas. Staff really welcoming. Glad we found this gem, if it were in London it would be packed due to the old school experience! Definitely will be back...and soon.More

Even a genuine juke box. 5 records for £1 - some Golden oldies We took our friends from USA here for lunch on a trip to...Elgin Freshly cooked haddock and chips - choice of other options too Mug of tea - although Bill was brave and tried the hot fresh orange in a mug This is stepping back in time for fun. Staff simply lovely and welcoming and decent fish and chipsMore

Don’t bother!! Food Awful and totally overpriced. The staff are the rudest I’ve Ever came across - totally shocked by the attitude!! Also, I had part of my order wrong, which I only realised when home. Don’t part with your money in this place.

A family vote decided we choose this fish and chip shop rather than the one further down the High St. Unfortunately it live up to expectations, the fish lacked any taste and a bit greasy, the chips were better but not much. The groups general...consensus was we'll try other places in future.More

Visited this chip shop with husband who remembered it as a first class chippy how things change fish was nice enough and husband's white pudding adequate. However the chips were a disgrace made up mostly of small hard scraps of potatoe an those that were...bigger tasted poor. When I made a complaint in a polite but firm manner the proprietor was rude and refused to believe my complaint. I told him I had no problems paying everything but the chips and rather than at least listen to my point of view even after I showed him the evidence he said the chips were fine. I did end up paying for the chips but this left me feeling certain proprietors have no idea about good customer service, needless to say we will never visit this place again. Poor reflection on how shop owner views his customersMore

Top notch chippy in Elgin. We have visited twice now and had the fish and chip supper. Fish cooked perfectly, batter very light and crisp and chips to die for. All in all a great wee chippy

Came here as cadora was closed. Will not be returning. Customer service is a miss..... the couple who I assume are the owners are quite rude! They just dont talk and just grunt in the background! I was onlt ordering chips and rhey were made...to order so i was looking forward to having some fresh chips, how wrong was I. Clearly the frier doesnt get cleaned often as rhey were off colour and I wouldnt recommend them. No customer service, took forever just for chips that i didnt enjoy. Will not be returning.More
