Being new to the area I tried the fish and chips. Not the best I've ever had and for the price should have been better but won't stop me going back. I did pop in for a sit down breakfast, bad idea. Very poor quality on all fronts. I would say the sausages were not as good as the "value... More

I was passing this the other day so I thought I would try them out as I used to go there quite regularly. I stopped going about 3 years ago because the quality of the food went downhill and the large chip portions seems to get 40% smaller. I have been probably 3 times in the last 3 years and... More

Didn't know the area and needed to go to Tesco nearby anyway so got two standard cod & chips for a friend and myself from here for dinner. It was relatively quick, but as I watched the girl portion up the chips I realised that literally with no word of hyperbole, this was the smallest portion of chips I'd ever... More

Really gone downhill recently which is shame as it used to be good. staff are all more interested in their phones and chatting than cleaning up tables and serving. I ordered pie chips and beans......£7.45....wtf. try charlies cafe in Danes Hill. the food is better and the same meal is a fiver.

Shopping in the area yesterday, decided to have some lunch here. We sat outside as it was a nice day. My partner went in and, even though he was the only one in there seemed to take forever. He finally came out with a tiny bag for 3 people. Gave me and our son our fish cakes....took one look at... More

Everyone raves how much a rival in Old Basing is but this is by far my favourite fish and chip place in Basingstoke. Never eaten in but the take away is always freshly cooked to a very high standard

Very small portions and overpriced. Food quality was ok but nothing special. It has gone downhill since my last visit.

The lady whines that she isn't going to fry more chips. It was only 8.30 on a Saturday night. Closes at 10!!! But the woman who was frying said she wasn't going to do any more chips. The poor young (young yes he was only 17 and in training) had to try and serve at least 10 people waiting with... More
