Excellent take away. The quality of fish was fantastic and the service, albeit takeaway was highly efficient. Well worth a drive here rather than closer to home where I struggle to find decent chippies. Well done

To do Brown's justice it would be pathetic To write in prose, so I must wax poetic. A fourth visit to Brown's and I must tell That nowhere else does food so well. It sounds like humble fish and chips But eat there, you'll be thrilled to bits. The quantities, fit for a king, But really the important thing Is... More

When we arrived customers had lined up outside the chippie, it was that busy. Rather than wait we elected to eat inside and try the restaurant, we were not disappointed. A really good touch was the homemade tartar sauce served with excellent fish and chips, A choice of fish included fresh sea bass and crab and lobster is often on... More

Of all the fish & chip shops in this area I really think Browns is the best! I haven't used it very often as I tend not to eat too many fish & chip meals. However, whenever I do it is always excellent, value, cleanliness, & good quality fish & chips!

Went to Browns as it served GF fish and chips and was not disappointed. When you have a food intolerance you miss your favourites...but not when you have a great place like Browns. The GF fish and chips ... fabulous. I wish this was my local as I would be there every week. The restaurant is small so get on... More

This fish and chip restaurant has only 5 tables but the food is the best I have tasted in the area,that I have visited frequently over a number of years. There are different types of preparation for your fish,from steamed to light batter,which again is a plus,as are various types of fish on offer. The food was cooked to order... More

Had a take out. Great big portion of chips, really nice fish that was cooked to perfection. Comes in a box, you do your own salt and vinegar. Or you can sit in - fabulous. What a great place!

We normally get a take away from Browns but decided to try eating in and it was so much nicer. The fish and chips don't get soggy on the way home but are nice and crisp as they should be. We'll be back for lunch again soon!
