We visited this café last week and had a great time. Service was excellent and the food was out of this world! Very tasty, well cooked, and plenty of it.

Nick the Fish is the best fish and chips I've eaten in Dorset. Nick the Fish had really quick and pleasant service, warming and enjoyable atmosphere and great staff. The fish is not greasy and is really enjoyable would defiantly come again.

Nick the fish is by far the best fish and chip shop I have been to! The staff couldn't be more helpful and the food is freshly cooked to order so tastes amazing. I would recommend the large haddock which is brilliant value for money!

Possibly the best fish and chip shop I've been fortunate enough to visit. The batter was fantastically light, crispy and tasty, and my haddock cooked to perfection. IME too many places overcook the fish causing it to become dry and stringy, but here it was...More

Can't remember having fish and chips better than this. Superb crispy batter, lovely fish. We sat in at one of two tables and enjoyed a glass of wine with our meal. Fantastic friendly service. Would definitely recommend.
