If you enjoy freshly cooked to perfection fish and chips, Nick and his wife Vicky will not disappoint you. Always a treat to eat here. In a nutshell you eat gourmet fish and chips that taste special for very sensible prices so that everyone can afford and enjoy it. These guys have a passion and a pride in what they... More

Although we live 10 paces from another well known fish and chips restaurant, reviews prompted us to visit this evening. Boy were we blown away; cod snow white, succulent and super fresh. Batter bow away light, crispy and no oiliness at all. Chips, crisy and actually real-life golden. This has raised the takeaway bar to stratospheric levels and all prepared... More

We have just found this place and use it regularly now. Really good quality fish (large is the size of a Whale) and beautifully cooked chips. Great curry sauce & mushy peas. We have used Deliveroo which is quick and everything is delivered piping hot. It is difficult to explain good fish & chips, so give them a try, you'll... More

We usually go to Chez Fred but it's so busy there I thought we would give Nicks a try, we weren't disappointed, I only had chips but they were delicious, I'm very fussy with chips and can't stand soggy greasy chip shop chips but these were amazing, not at all greasy, tasted good and were crispy and fluffy, I would...

Another fantastic fish supper at Nick the fish again on Saturday night. Cannot recommend this place enough. The batter on the fish is so crispy and not greasy. Bonus homemade tartar sauce always a must and the staff are as always friendly, courteous and efficient regardless how busy they are. Next time you fancy a take away ( or eat... More

Definitely a good place to eat different kinds of fish and chips, although I would recommend the burgers, too, they were really tasty.

Unfortunately trip advisor can be abused by some people, declaring shop owners as racist is utterly ridiculous; they have 'people of colour' (is this the 1940's?) in their own family!! The food is utterly gorgeous and well worth the price. My children regularly ask to go here. Hot, fresh and huge portions, what more do you want??? Keep it up... More
