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.

Great food and very friendly staff the whole year around with lots of regulars addicted to their golden crispy fish and chips to die for. They never use burnt oil i observed. Fish is always the right color and right taste. The Owner / Manager...is always on top of his place and watches over his business 24/7 very meticulously. You feel the care every minute when you are there. They are very careful with respect to customers like their own family. I only felt professionalism all around every time i am there and i love the decoration with Elvis and Marlyn Monroe Mural Tile wall done very artistically. Well done and many thanks. Great atmosphere and joy to be there.More

Absolutely love, Dr chippies I love the staff they’re always so friendly. The food is always fresh always! Brilliant chip shop with wide menu, halal sausages which is great so we don’t have to miss out on a nice battered sausage (chicken & beef instead...of pork ) staff, always warm and welcoming 👌🏾More

The fish is fresh and cooked to perfection. Chips could be have been cooked a little more, but we all have different taste, so just my opinion. Big portions and friendly staff.
