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.

We have used this takeaway for 30 years but since using uber the quality has dived. We have threatened lots of times to stop using them but loyalty has made us go back. Not this time. We ordered at 15.05hrs with a 15-25 minute delivery...time. It arrived at 15.50hrs and was obviously freezing so I asked the driver how many other deliveries he had done first. He said none so therefore the food must have left Ocean Fresh cold. £37 wasted ! As it was too cold to enjoy. Did it even come from Ocean Fresh ? I used to love the food at this place and feel sad to say that I would not recommend it to anyone now if it was from there. You can see from the photos what we leftMore

This chippy is just bad and customer service is shocking. I went there a year ago and I asked for slight amendment in my order: I just wanted some greek style chicken and some chips on the side, I was told by a rude guy...wearing glasses, “that’s not on the menu” , the menu item was a wrap with the same chicken and chips on the side. Now, was I being awkward just not wanting the wrap but just the chicken? I was told “I can’t just make up the menu every time someone asks me” .. way to go to run business! Not impressed at all. Now I just went few hours ago , the young man serving me had his head up his back side: splashed salt and vinegar to everything I ordered without asking me and I didn’t want any, made me a mixed meet tray when I ordered only chicken, and on top of that I ordered a pot of beans and when I got home I found a pot of gravy. Very, very poor. Definitely won’t be going there again.More

This was our first visit to Ocean Fresh at lunchtime. Saturday lunchtime and we fancied some fish and chips. A lovely clean restaurant that serves not only fish and chips but a large selection of English and Greek meals. It's also licensed. We enjoyed our...fish and chips, obviously cooked fresh with thin crispy batter. Together with a bottle of Chardonnay, a truly enjoyable meal. We'll be back, not just at lunchtime for fish and chips but in an evening to try some of the main dishes on the menu. Despite being fairly local, we've missed out on this gem for too long. Speaking to the staff, it seems that booking is advised.More

Very diappointed not to be able to buy drinks with food. They have too steps into the shop and no ramp. The owners wire previoysly had said just to ask if you needed help. Soi asked what drinks they had but they couldn't be bothered...to help. Why board up access. But they help someone with obvious disabilities. Likewise there menuis above thw counter so i cant aee it. Just ask she said but i darent as they dont want to. Portion size was smaller than normal and lukewarm. This chippy must be making far too much moneyif they can afford to turn away £5ish for 3 bottles of pop. Last time i wrote a review they asked me to remove it. But i wont until ypu do something about your ablist attitude. The whole point of a sunflower lanyard is to let people who work in an establishment that you have hidden diaabilities. Some bother going here if ypu have disabilities as they news aware training in this matter. They think the term guide dog is acceptable not assistance dog. Go v shack much better. Rhere uaed to be a ramp n int he restaurant with access to the takeaway side. They cant say i have the attitude as i waited without saying word.More

We used to be regular customers at Ocean Fresh but got out of the habit during Covid. Today, therefore, was our first visit for a couple of years. First impression was that it's still immaculate. Service still friendly and efficient. We were pleasantly surprised by...the menu to find that, in spite of soaring fish prices, the standard fish and chip meal is only £11.20. Drinks are still exceptionally good value. The food was up to expectations, very fresh and generous portions. We shall definitely become regular customers again.More

We come here regularly maybe 1 fever 3 months and the battered Sausages are the best! Perfectly Crispy on the outside. The chips are massive portions and the curry sauce is delicious. My 4 year old loves the kids meals which is a small battered...fish and chips there are other choices too. Very good value for money! We wouldn't go anywhere else.More

It's a 5 out of 5.... Very good fish and chips.... Nice to have a side of curry sauce included.... However wife's salmon with Hollandaise sauce should have really come with some vegetable offering...

Have used this chip shop for 30 years and it's been great. Today was a big wake up call. Prices had gone up between £1 and £2 . The kebab meat and chips came without the usual salad. Oh and everything was ice cold ....In fact all of what we ordered was rubbish. Hope you enjoy your new relationship with UberMore

What a let down the chips were under cooked soft and almost white and lukewarm. The fish was in crunchy batter and was hot but on removing lots of batter there was not a large fish.

Hello The only day we have a pan available for this is on a Wednesday. It is our gluten free day, but we do fry Fish in the same pan not meat. I don’t know if that’s any good to you? Thank you for your enquiry.
